Yet another recall....

this time, one of my favorites, basil.
Some 5,500 pounds of basil grown in Mexico and sold in the United States is being recalled because of fears it may be infected with salmonella. - KSBY

The Southern California distributor sold the basil to restaurants and other food service customers, but it was unknown whether the other distributors sold to food service customers or retailers, he said.

No illnesses have been reported.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration inspectors detected the possible contamination during a random check as the basil passed over the Otay Mesa border crossing in San Diego County, Martinez said. - AP

5,500 is alot of the fragrant green stuff.
