Nijay International, Inc. of Anaheim, CA is recalling 8 cases of Down to Earth Organic Coriander Powder, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
