A California food company is voluntarily recalling 6,141 cartons of cilantro in seven states that may be contaminated with salmonella.
               

Salinas-based Pacific Cilantro said Friday the Food and Drug Administration found salmonella in a sample of their herbs.
               
No illnesses have been reported. The cilantro is being recalled as a precaution.
               
The cilantro, also known as coriander, was distributed in California, Arizona, Massachussetts, New Jersey, Indiana, South Carolina and Missouri through retailers.
 
Consumers are advised to return cilantro purchased after Nov. 16 and before Dec. 10.
              
The cilantro was grown by Salt River Farming in the Phoenix-area.
             
 Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal illness in children, the elderly, or those with compromised immune systems.
              
Each bunch has `"Pacific" on the twist tie and the UPC code 33383 80104.
