Dozens Of Salads And Wraps May Contain A Fecal Parasite, USDA Warns

This week, federal officials warned consumers not to eat certain salad and wrap products sold at certain stores, including Kroger, Trader Joe's and Walgreens, according to CNN, because the products may be contaminated with Cyclospora cayetanensis, a microscopic, single-celled parasite that causes intestinal illness.

A health alert has been issued for two dozen types of salads and sandwich wraps that may contain lettuce infected with a fecal parasite.

The salads and wraps were produced between July 15 and 18 and the "Best by", "Enjoy by", "Best if sold by" or "Sell by" dates will range between July 18 and July 23.

Cyclospora can cause diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, fatigue, body aches and fever a week or more after someone consumes food or liquid contaminated with the parasite, according to the FSIS.

The alert follows Caito Food's lettuce supplier, Fresh Express, issuing a recall of its chopped romaine which is used in Caito Food's products, the FSIS said.

News of the recall comes after a cyclospora infection outbreak that began in May and was linked to McDonald's salads supplied by Fresh Express.

Del Monte Fresh Produce in June issued a voluntary recall of vegetable trays sold in six Midwest states, including IL, due to potential cyclospora contamination.

The salads and wraps were sold at popular stores such as Trader Joe's, Walgreen's, and Kroger.

Even though the products are past their "best by" dates, the USDA is concerned that they may still be in people's refrigerators. "39985 or P-39985" near the USDA mark of inspection.

"Symptoms may seem to go away and then return one or more times (relapse)".
