Parasite risk in salads and wraps sold at Kroger, Walgreens, Trader Joe's

The problem was discovered when Caito Foods received notification from its lettuce supplier, Fresh Express, that the chopped romaine that is used to manufacture some of their salads and wraps was being recalled.

The products were produced between July 15 to 18 and have "Best By", "Enjoy by", "Best if Sold By" or "Sell By" dates ranging from July 18 through July 23, 2018. This time, the unfortunate honor has fallen on Walgreens, Kroger, and Trader Joe's, which have been forced to recall salads and wraps possibly contaminated with the cyclospora parasite.

Federal officials are warning consumers to throw away or return over two dozen varieties of salads and wraps sold at major grocery store chains because of concerns about parasitic contamination.
