Salad Kits Linked To E. Coli Says The CDCDecember 17, 2019 5:06 pm
Nearly 10 people were found with a strain of E. Coli that originated from salad kits sold in early December under the moniker Fresh Express Sunflower Crisp. While no deaths were reported, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has recommended that individuals and restaurants cease to use any salad kits that were made under this label with a sell by date before December 7th, 2019 with an identification code UPC 0 71279 30906 4, beginning with lot code Z.
This recall is not related to the on-going recall of romaine lettuce that the CDC continues to monitor and has led to over 100 cases of E. Coli being reported over the last two months.
If this is a salad kit that you have or have had in your refrigerator the CDC recommends throwing it out, even if it has been partially eaten and no one has gotten sick and sanitizing all refrigerator drawers that the salad came in contact with.
