The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalled the Fresco Green Farms Inc. cilantro.

The recall involves the 36-ounce trays of “El Torito Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad Kit.” Each 18-pound case contains eight of the 36-ounce trays. The case has the product number of “24203.” The USDA mark of Inspection logo has the establishment number “P-4140” listed on the recalled packages.

The recalled salad kits were made between July 23, 2012 through August 6, 2012 and were distributed to California retail locations. The sell-by dates are listed as "08/23/12," "08/30/12," "09/06/12," or "09/14/12." Only the products with the matching sell-by dates are involved in the recall.

The FSIS did not have a specific list of retailers who are involved, but would post it when this information becomes available.

The symptoms could last for up to 7 days. People with weakened immune systems, the elderly, and the very young are at an increased risk, and Salmonella infections can become serious. People concerned about illness should consult with their medical provider.
