Outbreak over

September 25, 2020
The multistate outbreak of Cyclospora infections linked to salad products that were made by Fresh Express containing iceberg lettuce, red cabbage, and carrots and that were sold in several regions of the United States investigated by the FDA, along with CDC and state and local partners, is over. The outbreak included Fresh Express branded products as well as products made by Fresh Express for retail store brands sold at ALDI, Giant Eagle, Hy-Vee, Jewel-Osco, ShopRite, and Walmart. FDA’s investigation is continuing, in consultation with the state agriculture and regional water board.
Recommendations
On June 27, 2020, Fresh Express recalled products containing either iceberg lettuce, red cabbage or carrots and displaying the product code Z178, or a lower number. The “Best by” date on the products run through July 14, 2020.
The recalled products are now well beyond expiration and likely no longer on the market or in consumers’ homes.
