Health alert issued for Caito Foods products due to Cyclospora concerns

The salad and wrap products were distributed by Caito Foods LLC, which received a notice from its lettuce supplier, Fresh Express, that the chopped romaine used in some of the products was being recalled.

"FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers' refrigerators and that consumers may be at risk due to the length of the cyclospora incubation period", which ranges from two to 14 days, the agency stated.

Federal officials are warning consumers to be on guard for signs of intestinal distress if they've eaten any of more than two dozen types of salads and wraps sold by several major retailers around the U.S.

The USDA did not respond to a request for comment.

They have the establishment number 'EST.

"Upon learning of the recall, we notified these stores to immediately pull and dispose of any product on store shelves", Mack said.

News of the recall comes after a cyclospora infection outbreak that began in May and was linked to McDonald's salads supplied by Fresh Express. The outbreak triggered recalls at thousands of stores.

The Cyclospora parasite causes cyclosporiasis, characterized by vomiting and "explosive" diarrhea a week or even more than a month after eating the offending food.

"Fresh Express recalled, as a precaution only, a limited of already-expired food service products", the company said.

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.

The distributor is working with the FSIS to remove the products from stores, according to the alert.

The symptoms of Cyclosporiasis include loss of appetite, weight loss, cramping, bloating, nausea, fatigue, and other flu-like symptoms.
