Recall of ALDI Little Salad Bar Garden Salad For Cyclospora Updated

The recalled product is ALDI Little Salad Bar Garden Salads that have use by dates of May 16 to July 4, 2020. The previous use by dates were May 1 to June 29, 2020. All product codes of the salad are recalled. The salads were sold in ALDI stores in Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin between May 1 and June 19, 2020. The people sickened in this outbreak live in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas, and Wisconsin.

The salad was produced for ALDI by Fresh Express. If you bought this salad, don’t eat it, even if some was consumed without anyone getting sick. Cyclospora, like other pathogens, can cluster in small areas in a product and you can’t tell if a portion you are eating is contaminated.

Throw the salad away in a sealed garbage can with a tight fitting lid, or take it back to the store where you bought it for a full refund. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling this product.

If you ate any of this salad, watch yourself for the symptoms of cyclosporiasis, which can take 2 to 5 days to manifest. Symptoms include weight loss, loss of appetite, gas, bloating, stomach and abdominal cramps, headache, fever, vomiting, and the characteristic sign of watery and explosive diarrhea. There is treatment for this infection but it is sulfa based. People who are allergic to sulfa don’t have good alternative treatments.
