What’s the Problem?
According to the FDA Recall Notice, this action affects:
- ShopRite Wholesome Pantry Organic Chopped Sesame Asian Salad Kit — 10.9 oz — UPC Code 041190066308 — Production Code Z178 or Lower — Use-By or Before Date: July 12.
- Wholesome Pantry Organic Sesame Asian Salad Kit — 13 oz — UPC Code 041190066292 — Production Code: Z178 or Lower — Use-By or Before Date: July 11.
These salads were produced by Fresh Express, and contain iceberg lettuce, red cabbage, and carrots.
The recalled salads display the product code Z178, or a lower number on the upper right-hand corner of the front of each package, FDA said. Affected products were made in the Fresh Express production facility in Streamwood, Illinois, and have the potential to be contaminated with cyclospora.
Signs and symptoms of cyclospora infection include:
- Frequent, watery diarrhea
- Bouts of diarrhea alternating with bouts of constipation
- Loss of appetite and weight loss
- Bloating, flatulence and burping
- Stomach cramps
- Nausea and vomiting
- Muscle aches
