According to the FDA, Fresh Express has recalled the above batch/lots of Fresh Express, Giant Eagle, Hy-Vee, Little Salad Bar, Marketside, Signature Farms and Wholesome Pantry branded Salads from the American marketplace due to suspected Cyclospora cayetanensisa contamination.

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.
