Walgreens, Kroger, Trader Joe’s wraps and salad may contain parasites


The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service issued a public health alert this week for people to watch out for signs of parasite infections if they’ve eaten two dozen varieties of wraps and salad sold nationwide by retailers such as Walgreens and Kroger and Trader Joe’s.

According to the USDA’s Public Health Alert, beef, pork and poultry salad and wrap products may be infected by the parasite known as ‘cyclospora cayetanenis’.

The foods were distributed by Caito Foods of Indianapolis, whose supplier, Fresh Express, notified them of a recall.

All 25 products are now out of date, produced from July 15 to 18 with the sell by dates ranging from July 18 through July 23, 2018.
