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

The USDA said that 25 items were affected by the Cyclospora parasite

Intestinal parasites that can cause severe and painful symptoms may have tainted beef, pork and poultry in certain salads and wrap products made between July 15 and 18 with sell-by dates of July 18 through 23, the agency said Monday.

The salad and wrap products were distributed by Caito Foods LLC, which received a notice from its lettuce supplier, Fresh Express, that the chopped romaine used in some of the products was being recalled.

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

The FDA is advising these products to be thrown away or returned to where they were purchased out of precaution.

The new recall, which the Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service issued this week, does not affect the Kroger-owned Mariano's grocery chain, company spokesman Jim Hyland said Wednesday.

The summer has been rife with recalls and reported cyclospora infections, especially in IL.

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.

At Deerfield-based Walgreens, the recalled products were sold "in a limited number of our stores in IL only", spokeswoman Allison Mack said in an email Wednesday.

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.

Those who are concerned about an illness should talk to a doctor. 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.
