Fresh Express on a Voluntary Recall Due to a Cyclospora Outbreak Impacting Several Midwest States, Leading to the Hospitalization of Nearly Two Dozen People.

June 30, 2020

Our immediate thoughts and concern are for those consumers who have become ill due to the outbreak.

  • The CDC believes a cyclospora outbreak is linked to pre-package lettuce made by Fresh Express.
  • More than 200 people are sick across 8 states in the Midwest.
  • Cyclospora is a parasite than can cause a series of symptoms – include flu-like symptoms.
  • Why It Matters: Overall awareness. Fresh Express makes a series of salad mixes under other names, leading to a domino effect of recalls. Cyclospora parasite causes symptoms similar to those described by the virus that causes COVID-19.
