What's the Problem?
The FDA and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have both issued safety alerts warning consumers in 6 Midwestern states not to eat select salads sold at Hy-Vee, ALDI and Jewel-Osco grocery stores. Affected products include:
- Hy-Vee Brand Garden Salad from Hy-Vee grocery stores
- ALDI Little Salad Bar Brand Garden Salad from ALDI grocery stores
- Signature Farms Brand Garden Salad from Jewel-Osco
These pre-packaged, bagged garden salad blends contain iceberg lettuce, red cabbage and carrots.
According to the CDC, there have been at least 76 confirmed cyclospora infections, including 16 hospitalizations, reported in the following states: Iowa (28), Illinois (23), Kansas (1), Missouri (7), Nebraska (7) and Minnesota (10).
FDA and CDC said the investigation is ongoing and there could be additional retailers and products "impacted by the outbreak."
"The FDA is working with the companies to determine the source of the products, but in the meantime, we are issuing a public warning to consumers to avoid the identified products to prevent additional infections," said Frank Yiannas, FDA deputy commissioner for food policy and response.
Anyone who had food poisoning symptoms after eating any recalled products should contact their doctor as soon as possible.
