  • Jewel-Osco Signature Farms Garden Salads, sold with use-by dates ranging from May 16, 2020 to July 4, 2020, a unique plant number/facility code of S5424 and known to have been distributed in Jewel-Osco stores in Illinois, Indiana and Iowa with a UPC of 21130 98135.

According to the FDA, Jewel-Osco, has recalled certain batch/lots of Signature Farms branded Garden Salads from the American marketplace due to suspected Cyclospora cayetanensisa contamination. This recall was reportedly made in cooperation with Fresh Express, a company whose bagged Salad products have been linked to an outbreak of Cyclospora infections in the US Midwest.

Cyclospora infects the small intestine and usually causes watery diarrhea (sometimes, explosive diarrhea) with frequent bowel movements. Other symptoms include loss of appetite, weight loss, bloating, increased gas, stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, tiredness, muscle aches, and low-grade fever. Serious cases of Cyclospora infection are treated with antibiotics prescribed by a licensed physician.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of these recalled Salads, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.
