Colombian basil tested in Miami might have Cyclospora

The Bradenton Herald in Florida, just 30 minutes from beautiful Anna Maria Island in the Gulf of Mexico where the family and friends have vacationed for years, reported for the second time in three months, there’s a multistate, multi-brand organic basil recall prompted by the possibility of cyclospora after testing done in Florida.

The recall announced by Shenandoah Growers’ last week involves a couple of brands also in November’s massive recall, which was ignited by Florida Department of Agriculture testing. This product pull, according to the company-written, FDA-posted recall notice, followed FDA testing in Miami of basil grown at Puerto Vallarta Herbs SAS farms in Colombia.
