Recalled products were distributed to select retail stores between Oct. 20 and Oct. 30, 2020, in Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Washington, D.C.

The Shenandoah Growers’ recall includes only those clamshells of certified organic basil clearly marked with the affected lot codes listed above. The lot code can be found printed on each clamshell.

This precautionary recall notification is being issued due to an isolated instance in which a package pulled by the Florida Department of Agriculture on Nov. 2, 2020, from a retail store in Florida indicated the potential presence of Cyclospora.
