Dead bat in Fresh Express salad prompts recall

Precautionary recall of salads announced by Fresh Express

On Saturday, Fresh Express issued a recall of the Organic Marketside spring mix that were sold in a clear plastic container.

"Upon receiving notification, both Walmart and Fresh Express food safety and rapid response teams, in close coordination with regulatory authorities, acted immediately to review all relevant records, launch an intensive investigation and initiate product removal and recall procedures", Fresh Express said.

The company said "extraneous animal matter" was allegedly "found in a single container of the salad".

The CDC said the two people report being in good health and the risk of rabies transmission is very low, but because the chance isn't zero, it is recommending the two begin rabies treatment. Lab testing could not rule out the possibility of the bat having rabies. Organic Marketside Spring Mix sold in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. The salads were sold in a clear container with the production code G089B19 and best-if-used-by date of April 14, 2017. The discovery has also led to a recall of some cases of the packaged salad.

Consumers who may purchased the recalled product are asked to discard it.

The two people reported eating some of the salad before finding the bat. The CDC does recommend that anyone who ate the recalled salad and found animal material should contact the health department for evaluation.
