Dried mint recalled in Australia for Salmonella

Mint was becoming my new favorite herb. Got a plant growing out back and, even though bartenders complain, I’ve been making the occasional mojito.

But birds, animals and skinks all have to crap somewhere – and herbs are quite vulnerable to microbial contamination.

Grand Foods has recalled Mint Tr Kuru Nane (Tr) – dried mint from Grand Foods retail outlet in Campbellfield, Victoria due to Salmonella contamination. Food products contaminated with Salmonella may cause illness if consumed.

Yes, Amy’s drinking some rum drink out of a coconut, with mint. Sorenne is drinking juice.
