Buurma Farms Inc. of Willard, OH, is voluntarily recalling 320 boxes of its Plain Parsley after testing showed possible contamination with Shiga-toxin producing E.coli. The product being recalled is Buurma Plain (flat leaf) Parsley with a harvest date of August 30, 2021 from their Gregory, Michigan location. The wholesale distribution channels involved in the recall do not have the twist-tie and instead have only a plain red rubber band on the bunch. The product involved should already be out of distribution but if consumers have any product they question, do not consume it, but rather discard it. Retailers and consumers with questions may call the consumer hotline at 866-827-3362, Monday to Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. ET. <Read more...>
