Since moving to California, I've been to the Emergency Room six times in the last ten years for severe allergic reactions to cilantro.
Californians seem to put the crap in everything, everywhere, even things you normally wouldn't expect to have it in it. The last time, it was in a pesto sauce - someone apparently mistook it for parsley and ended up poisoning me with it.
Consider yourself very lucky if all it does is ruin your mean and make you throw up over the taste.
