If you recently bought a salad from Walgreens or Trader Joes, you need to read this.
WDBJ 7 says, “Federal officials are warning consumers to be on guard for signs of intestinal distress if they’ve eaten any of more than two dozen types of salads and wraps sold by several major retailers around the U.S.
In a public health alert issued Monday night, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) cited worries that beef, pork and poultry salad and wrap products may be infected by a parasite known as cyclospora cayetanenis.
Distributed nationwide by Caito Foods of Indianapolis, the possibly tainted products were sold by retailers including Kroger, Trader Joe’s and Walgreens. 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.
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.”
This is no joke! Check your fridge!
