Fresh Express Salads Recalled in Canada For Possible Cyclospora

Fresh Express is recalling some of its Fresh Express brand salad products from the marketplace in Canada for possible cyclospora contamination. No illnesses have been reported in Canada, but Fresh Express ingredients are potentially linked to a large cyclospora outbreak in the United States.

All of the recalled products have a lot code beginning with “Z 177” or a lower number. They are all Fresh Express brand.

The recalled salads are Chopped Kit Chipotle Cheddar in 323 gram packages with UPC number 0 71279306049 8 and best before date July 8, 2020; American in 312 gram packages and UPC number 0 71279241036 2 with best before date July 11, 2020; Chopped Kit Thai ‘N’ Cashews in 332 gram packages, with UPC number 0 71279309255 0, and best before date July 11, 2020; and Veggie Lover’s in 340 gram packages with UPC number 0 71279281063 6 and best before date July 11, 2020.

Also recalled are Chopped Kit Sunflower Crisp in 315 gram packages with UPC number 0 71279309330 4 and best before date July 11, 2020; Iceberg Garden in 680 gram packages with UPC number 0 71279104119 2 and best before date July 12, 2020; Iceberg Garden in 340 gram packages with UPC number 0 71279103020 2 and best before date July 12, 2020; and SHREDS in 226 gram packages, with UPC number 0 71279151014 8 and best before date July 12, 2020.

Finally, Green & Crisp is recalled, sold in 312 gram packages, with UPC number 0 71279108131 0 and best before date July 12, 2020; Chopped Kit Asian in 340 gram packages with UPC number 0 71279309293 2 and best before date July 13, 2020; Chopped Kit Southwest in 326 gram packages with UPC number 0 71279309309 0 and best before date July 12, 2020; and 3 Color Deli Cole Slaw in 397 gram packages, with UPC number 0 71279123028 2 and best before date July 14, 2020.

This Fresh Express Salads recall in Canada was triggered by the company. The CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation which may lead to the recall of other products.

If you purchased any of these salads, throw them away. You can also take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund.

The symptoms of cyclosporiasis include explosive and watery diarrhea, gas, bloating, weight loss, fatigue, fever, loss of appetite, nausea, and vomiting. If you ate these salads and have been sick with these symptoms, see your doctor.

    I have a question. My package of Chopped Kit Thai ‘N’ cashews is 332 g (Z169) and has the same UPC as the recalled packages. However instead of best before July 11 mine states best before July 5. Should I throw mine out?

      It’s better to be safe than sorry; I would discard that salad if I were you. Some of the Fresh Express salad recalls in the U.S. are for all expiration dates. It may be different in Canada.
