The products subject to recall bear establishment number EST. 34834 inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Oregon and Washington.

The problem was discovered on October 15, 2018 when Taylor Farms Northwest received notification that fire-roasted diced tomatillos used in the production of their pork carnitas bowls was being recalled by their tomatillos supplier due to Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella concerns. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Most people recover without treatment. In some persons, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized.
