Certain Fresh Express salads recalled due to multi-state outbreak of cyclospora infections

CLEVELAND (WJW) – The FDA warns consumers do not eat products made by Fresh Express, including iceburg lettuce, red cabbage or carrots.

According to the FDA, there is a multi-state epidemic of Cyclospora infections potentially linked to salads containing these ingredients. Cyclospora is a microscopic parasite that can affect the intestinal tract and cause diarrhea. He is treated with antibiotics.

“All of the recalled salads were sold in the Midwest states. Fresh Express is the manufacturer of each of these recalled salads. The FDA continues to investigate whether other retail brands of these salads could be affected, “said the FDA on its website.

As a result, Giant Eagle, Walmart and Aldi have issued recalls for several Fresh Express salad products. Customers should discard these products immediately.
