Today, the U.S. Department of Agriculture issued a warning about consuming beef, pork, and poultry salad and wrap products at the three retailers, after tracing a parasite breakout to Caito Foods in Indianapolis. 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.
The products were produced between July 15 to 18 and have "Best By", "Enjoy by", "Best if Sold By" or "Sell By" dates ranging from July 18 through July 23, 2018. The affected items were distributed nationwide to stores including Trader Joe's, Kroger and Walgreen's.
Cyclosporiasis, the illness caused by Cyclospora exposure, typically includes symptoms such as diarrhea, cramping, bloating, nausea, fatigue, weight loss and appetite loss, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A Walgreens spokesperson told TIME that affected products were available only at a "limited number" of stores in IL, and were immediately pulled from store shelves upon learning of the recall. The alert said the incubation period ranges from two to 14 days and that illnesses "might not have been reported yet due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill and when the illness is reported".
