Fresh Express Recalls Batch After Dead Bat Found In Prepackaged Salad

Fresh Express Recalls Batch After Dead Bat Found In Prepackaged Salad

The recall was issued after a dead bat was found in a package of salad purchased in Florida.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Florida Department of Health and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration say the bat was sent to the CDC to be tested for rabies. And, as the CDC points out, transmission through consuming an infected animal is "extremely uncommon".

The dead bat is alleged to have been found in a bag of Fresh Express Organic Marketside Spring Mix.

The salads are only distributed to Walmart stores located in the Southeastern part of the USA, including Alabama.

The two people reported eating some of the salad before finding the bat.

The CDC stated in a press release that anyone who has eaten from the brand product but haven't found any "animal material" are in the clear. Both report good health so far, according to the CDC. This is more than likely why the CDC put the risk of contracting rabies very low for the two consumers who ate the salad.

The recall was necessitated when Fresh Express was notified that extraneous animal matter was allegedly found in a single container of the salad. It was out of an abundance of caution that the Fresh Express people recalled the entire batch.

According to the report from NPR News, the recall of the salad batch was announced on Saturday. There are no other Marketside salads that are involved in this recall. As for the Fresh Express salad mix, you can contact the company and ask if you can get a refund.

The products were sold exclusively at Walmart stores in the Southeast. According to the same statements, it seems that only the Organic Marketside Spring Mix product is subjected to Fresh Express's voluntarily recall.
