Mojito garnish recalled

Sep 01, 2007

A Massachusetts company is recalling packages of Rimmer Mojito Cocktail Garnish because of the risk of Salmonella in one of its ingredients.

Although Stirrings LLC's tests of finished product samples were negative for the presence of Salmonella, parsley powder supplied by Van de Vries Spice tested positive for Salmonella.

The recall involves 3.5 oz packages with the best by codes 10/27/08, 10/30/08, 11/23/08, 12/01/08, 12/04/08 and 01/03/09 printed on the side of the tin.

The company said the recall may involve approximately 5,000 cases of product.

"We have removed parsley powder from our Rimmer Cocktail Garnish formula. This ingredient represents less than one half of one percent of the blend and was used primarily as a natural colorant," Chief Executive Officer Paul Nardone said Friday in a release.

The company said testing of 24 samples drawn from the Van de Vries lot of Mojito Rimmer failed to reveal the presence of Salmonella.
