E. Coli Contamination Confirmed in Salad Kits Sold Locally

E. Coli Contamination Confirmed in Salad Kits Sold Locally

A Salinas company's chopped salad kit was linked to an E.coli outbreak that sickened eight people in three USA states and 16 in Canada, health officials said Monday.

The affected Fresh Express Sunflower Crisp Chopped Salad Kits have a best-before date up to and including December 7, 2019, which is printed in the top right corner of the bag as "07DEC19".

"The outbreak appears to be ongoing, as recent illnesses continue to be reported", the Public Health Agency of Canada said.

So far, eight patients have been confirmed to have E.coli linked to the salad kits, including three in Wisconsin.

Three people were hospitalized, including a person who developed kidney failure. "No deaths have been reported", the PHAC notes.

The sick range in age from 11 to 73 years old. This product is not likely to be available at retail stores, but may still be in consumer's homes even though most growers we speak to in California have fully transitioned to Yuma, Arizona.

Russian Federation banned from 2020 Olympics and 2022 World Cup over doping scandal
If Russia's anti-doping agency (RUSADA) appeals the punishment, the case will be referred to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Legal fallout from the WADA ruling seems sure to dominate preparations for the Tokyo Olympics, which open on July 24.

In severe cases of illness, some people may have seizures or strokes, need blood transfusions and kidney dialysis or live with permanent kidney damage.

Some infected people won't feel sick - although they're still infectious - while others have symptoms including nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps and watery or bloody diarrhea starting one to 10 days after contact with the bacteria.

Canadians are advised not to eat the recalled product. It can also lead to death.

"Most people who become ill from an E. coli infection will recover completely on their own". In severe cases of illness, people may die.

The recall was triggered due to findings discovered by the CFIA during its investigation into a foodborne illness outbreak.
