APPA Fine Foods of California, US is recalling approximately 7,325 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken pasta salad products because they contain cilantro that may be contaminated with Salmonella, the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has announced.

The chicken pasta products were produced on Oct. 25, 27, and 29, 2010. The packages bear the establishment number “P-21030” within the USDA Mark of Inspection as well as a “USE BY” date of Oct. 31 or Nov. 1-6, 2010.

FSIS learned of the problem from the company as a result of an ongoing investigation into a cilantro recall issued by an FDA-inspected establishment. FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with the consumption of these ready-to-eat chicken pasta salad products.

The ready-to-eat chicken pasta salad products were distributed to distribution centers that sell to a single retail chain in California. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website.
