ALDI, Hy-Vee, and Jewel-Osco grocery stores likely did not make the “Cyclospora Salad.” It is most likely that one processor co-packed the “Triple-Washed and Ready to Enjoy” salads for the store brand packaged salads sold at these retailers
The FDA, along with CDC and state and local partners are investigating a multistate outbreak of Cyclospora infections potentially linked to ALDI, Hy-Vee, and Jewel-Osco grocery store brand “garden salads” containing iceberg lettuce, red cabbage, and carrots. This applies only to the store brand salads labeled as “garden salads” and not for other types of store brand packaged salads sold at these retailers.
States with ill cases: Iowa (28), Illinois (23), Kansas (1), Minnesota (10), Missouri (7)and Nebraska (7)
FDA and CDC are recommending that consumers should not eat, and restaurants and retailers should not sell or serve all ALDI Little Salad Bar Brand Garden Salad sold in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, and Missouri, all Hy-Vee Brand Garden Salad sold in Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, and Nebraska, and Jewel-Osco Signature Farms Brand Garden Salad sold in Illinois.
