Hy-Vee says they are recalling 13 different salads after hearing they may be contaminated.
Fresh Express, who manufactures the above products, announced the U.S. Food and Drug Adminitstration and the Centers for Disease Control Prevention have expanded their investigation of an outbreak of Cyclospora to the upper Midwest.
Cyclospora is a microscopic parasite that can cause a variety of health problems. The most common symptom is watery diarrhea. Other symptoms include loss of appetite, weight loss, cramping, bloating, increased gas, nausea, fatigue, vomiting, and low-grade fever. These ailments can last a month or more if left untreated. Individuals in poor health or weakened immune systems may be at a higher risk for severe or long-term illness.
Hy-Vee says anyone who purchased the following products should discard them immediately or bring them to Hy-Vee for a full refund.
