Fresh Express E. coli Lawyer Update: FDA Recalls Expired Salad Kits Due to E. coli Concerns.

Fresh Express announced a voluntary recall of a select number of cases of expired salad kits on November 17, 2020. The recall of the expired kits seems to only affect the Fresh Express Kit Caesar Supreme salad bags with Use-by Date of November 8, 2020, and Product Code S296. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stated in their report that the recall on the expired products was being issued due to an abundance of caution since one randomly selected product tested positive for Escherichia coli STEC 026 bacteria contamination. 

The FDA has informed that as of yet no illnesses or consumer complaints have been received by Fresh Express Consumer Response Center in regards to the recent recall. Fresh Express is working along with the FDA to issue the recall on the expired products, as many consumers may still have the potentially contaminated products in their refrigerators without realizing it. Consumers are being advised to discard and refrain from consuming the bagged salad kits, or to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

The recalled products were distributed to Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. The salad kits can be recognized by the UPC code 0 7127930104 4 on the backside of the package. Despite the products being expired stores are offering refunds due to the risk of E. coli STEC 026 exposure. 

E. coli symptoms normally include diarrhea, severe stomach cramps, and vomiting. Although most people fully recover from symptoms of E. coli within weeks, many more severe complications. Ron Simon, an E. coli Lawyer, stated: 

“The incubation period of E. coli bacteria is usually 3-4 days after the exposure, but maybe as short as 1 day or as long as 10 days. The symptoms often begin slowly with mild belly pain or non-bloody diarrhea that worsens over several days. HUS, if it occurs, develops an average of 7 days after the first symptoms, when the diarrhea is improving.”
