WASHINGTON — Shenandoah Growers, Inc. has issued a voluntary recall for approximately 3,240 clamshell packages of fresh-cut, organic basil due to a risk of Cyclospora.

Cyclospora is a parasite that causes an intestinal infection known as Cyclosporiasis. Cyclosporiasis symptoms include severe abdominal pain, watery diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, body aches, and fatigue.

The basil was packed at Shenandoah’s Indianapolis location, according to the FDA.

The recalled basil was distributed to stores in ten states, including Indiana, between Feb. 3 and Feb. 4, 2021. It was sold at Kroger under the Simple Truth brand name.

Here are details about the recalled items:
