Salads, Wraps Sold By Trader Joe's, Walgreens, Other Stores Recalled

"FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers' refrigerators and that consumers may be at risk due to the length of the Cyclospora incubation period", the announcement said.

Cyclospora infection, defined by the Centers for Disease Control, is an intestinal illness caused by a parasite.

The products being recalled were all produced between July 15 and July 18, with sell by dates from July 18 to July 23.

They have the establishment number 'EST. "39985 or P-39985". Some chopped romaine used by Caito Foods and supplied by Fresh Express has been recalled over feared Cyclospora contamination, according to the Food Safety and Inspection Service statement.

The products recalled from Trader Joe's include the Caesar salad with chicken, tarragon chicken salad wrap and the Chinese inspired salad with chicken.

The warning was issued out of an "abundance of caution", federal inspectors said in a news release, urging consumers not to eat the affected products, which should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

The symptoms include diarrhea, stomach cramping, nausea, weight loss, and fatigue.

The parasite, known as cyclospora cayetanenis, is spread by food or water that's contaminated with feces.

Possible Cyclospora contamination led McDonald's earlier this month to voluntarily stop selling salads at about 3,000 restaurants in 14 states until they could switch to a lettuce-mix supplier other than Fresh Express.

Caito Foods recently drew unwanted attention in a multi-state salmonella outbreak tied to recalled pre-cut melon that sickened 77 people in nine states.

Distributed nationwide by Caito Foods of Indianapolis, the possibly tainted products were sold by retailers including Kroger, Trader Joe's and Walgreens. A full list of products, labels, code numbers and identifying information can be found at fsis.usda.gov.
