If you purchased this salad, do not eat it. Throw it away in a sealed garbage can with a tight fitting lid, or take it back to the place of purchase for a full refund. Wash your hands well with soap and water after handling this product.

If you ate this salad, watch for symptoms of cyclosporiasis, the illness caused by this microscopic parasite, which can take up to a week to appear. Those symptoms include diarrhea that is watery and explosive, nausea, fatigue, weight loss, loss of appetite, stomach pain and cramps, bloating, and increased gas. Some patients may also experience flu-like symptoms such as headache, fever, vomiting, and body aches. If untreated, this  illness can last for weeks or months.
