ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Department of Agriculture says consumers should not eat fresh cilantro sold at certain stores because of possible salmonella contamination.

Routine testing found a sample of the product contaminated with salmonella.

The fresh cilantro was sold in bunches that were shipped to retailers in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan between July 26 and Aug. 6. All stores that received the cilantro have been notified to remove the product from their shelves.

The advisory applies only to cilantro shipped to the stores between July 26 and Aug. 6.

Consumers who bought the cilantro bunches are advised to throw them out or return them to the store for a refund.

No illnesses have been reported.

Minnesota is working with California regulators to determine the source of the product.
