What’s the Problem?

According to a Recall Notice [1] by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), this action affects all product codes of Marketside Classic Iceberg Salad sold in 12- and 24-ounce packages with best-if-used-by-dates of May 19, 2020, to July 04, 2020, and distributed between June 1, 2020, and June 21, 2020 in the following states: Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

Walmart stores have removed the recalled Marketside salads from store shelves and inventories, FDA said.

If you purchased any Marketside salads that are affected by this recall, you should not eat them, and either discard them or return them to the point of purchase for a refund. Anyone concerned about a potential cyclospora infection should call their healthcare provider right away.

This recall began on June 25, 2020.

What is Cyclosporiasis?

Cyclosporiasis is an intestinal illness caused by the microscopic parasite Cyclospora cayetanensis, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) [2.]. Cyclospora bacteria are found throughout the world but are most common in tropical and subtropical regions. Foodborne outbreaks have been linked to various types of fresh produce, including raspberries, basil, cilantro, snow peas, mesclun, and romaine lettuce.

Cyclosporiasis Symptoms

Symptoms of cyclosporiasis may include:

  • Watery diarrhea
  • Stomach cramps
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Slight fever
  • Nausea

Cyclospora Treatment

The recommended treatment for cyclosporiasis is a combination of 2 antibiotics, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (aka Bactrim, Septra, or Cotrim). Patients suffering from diarrhea should also rest and drink plenty of fluids.
