Salads, wraps at Trader Joe’s, Walgreens recalled due to possible parasite contamination

In a statement, Trader Joe's said no illnesses have been reported in connection with its products, and specified that they were sold only in Midwest stores.

A public health alert was issued Monday, with the agency saying certain beef, pork and poultry salad and wraps might have cyclospora contamination. Caito learned of the problem when its supplier, Fresh Express, notified it of a recall involving some of the lettuce in products packaged under a variety of brand names. The incubation period ranges from 2 to 14 days.

The products, which were distributed by Caito Foods of Indianapolis, all have "sell by" dates ranging from July 18 to July 23, meaning consumers should check their refrigerators.

People can become infected by consuming food or water contaminated with the microscopic parasite.

Consumers are urged to throw the salads and wraps out or return them to the place of purchase.

Cyclospora is a one-celled organism that can wreak havoc on the human body's digestive system, causing explosive diarrhea, nausea and fatigue.

The outer limit of the incubation period for this batch of food is August 6, the USDA said, and it could be up to six weeks before officials begin to receive reports of illness. They have the establishment number "EST". The infection can be treated with antibiotics.

The salad and wrap recall comes as a direct result of an outbreak of Cyclospora infection that began in May and was linked to McDonald's salads also supplied by Fresh Express, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
