OTTAWA – The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has announced special herbs used in Vietnam and other Southeast Asian cuisine.
The Canadian herb resembles its own kulantrope from the market for possible salmonella contamination.
The withdrawal applies to all bundles sold until Friday 9th, inclusive.
CFIA says the product can be sold in clear plastic bags called Canada Herb or repackaged and sold without label or coding.
No diseases have been reported, but the agency advises anyone who may have purchased the product to discard it.
Culantro – also known as Ngo Gai – is part of the same family that resembles the named greens, although it has a stronger flavor.
