FSIS Issued an Alert for Beef, Pork and Poultry Products due to Concerns about Contamination with Cyclospora
July 30, 2018 – The USDA/FSIS issued an alert due to concerns about contamination of beef, pork and poultry salad and wrap products were distributed by Caito Foods LLC, an Indianapolis, with Cyclospora. The products were produced on July 15 to 18, 2018. Boar's Head, Trader Joe's, GFS, and Walgreens are some of the names associated with the recall. The problem was discovered when Caito Foods received notification from their lettuce supplier, Fresh Express, that the chopped romaine that was used to manufacture some of their salads and wraps was 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. @ https://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/newsroom/news-releases-statements-and-transcripts/news-release-archives-by-year/archive/2018/pha-07302018-1" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/newsroom/news-releases-statements-and-transcripts/news-release-archives-by-year/archive/2018/pha-07302018-1
