Health officials recall series of bagged salad products
Customers should check for recently purchased Fresh Express Salads
Canadian health authorities have issued a recall for a series of salad products due to a possible contamination with Cyclospora, a microscopic parasite that can cause illness.
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. You can see a full list of products here.
Food that is contaminated with Cyclospora may not look or smell like it’s gone bad, but it can still cause illness. People infected with Cyclospora can experience stomach cramps, watery diarrhea and nausea, though few people get seriously ill.
Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased, the CFIA said on June 29.
