Salads Recalled Due To Possible Cyclospora Contamination

On June 29, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency recalled a number of Fresh Express Salad products with best before dates ranging from July 8 to 14.

A recall of salad products has expanded to include more than 90 different varieties and sizes including 49 types that were distributed and sold in MI.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says Fresh Express is recalling salad products due to possible Cyclospora contamination. If other high-risk products are recalled, the public will be notified through further warnings such as this one.

Fresh Express is taking their salad items off the shelves after over 200 cases of illness connected with cyclospora were reported south of the border.

The products were sold under the Aldi, Hy-Vee, Jewel-Osco, and Walmart store brands, as well as the Fresh Express brand in states in the Midwest.
