Health alert issued for salads, wraps sold at Kroger, Trader Joe's, Walgreens

Last month, Chicago-based McDonald's temporarily stopped selling salads at 3,000 restaurants in 14 states, mostly in the Midwest, after a cyclospora outbreak sickened hundreds of customers, including 228 reported cases in IL alone, according to the state's Department of Public Health.

However, according to FSIS, no illnesses have been linked to the latest recall but it warns any consumer who is concerned about the illness to contact a health care provider.

Federal health officials are warning consumers not to buy more than two dozen salads and wraps that are distributed to Kroger, Walgreens and Trader Joe's stores. It can also cause loss of appetite, weight loss, stomach cramps or pain, nausea, gas and fatigue, the CDC added.

People can become infected by consuming food or water contaminated with the microscopic parasite. Vomiting, headache, fever, body aches and flu-like symptoms can also occur.

The affected products include the Trader Joe's Tarragon Chicken Salad Wrap, the Trader Giotto's Caesar Salad with Chicken and Trader Ming's Chinese Inspired Salad with Chicken that contain best by dates between July 21 and July 23.

In a recorded message, Salinas, Calif. -based Fresh Express said the recall does not affect its retail salad products.

FSIS is urging consumers to throw away and avoid eating any of the potentially affected salads and wraps, which it is working with Caito to remove from store shelves.

"Symptoms may seem to go away and then return one or more times (relapse)".

The total number of laboratory-confirmed illnesses from that outbreak was at 286 as of July 26, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

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.
