CDC investigates bat found in Fresh Express salad sold at Florida Wal-Mart

Fresh Express announced a precautionary recall of its 5 oz.

Fresh Express has issued a recall of some Organic Marketside Spring Mix salad cases after two people reportedly discovered a dead bat inside a salad package purchased in Florida.

The salads were carried at the retailer's stores across the Southeastern region of the United States. They were recommended to start a post-exposure rabies treatment for precaution, though they are fine at the moment and show no signs of rabies. Not gross enough? Well, turns out the bat was in such deteriorated condition that when USA health officials tried to test it in the lab, they couldn't definitively determine if that bat had rabies, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Saturday.

The CDC notes that transmission of rabies through eating a rabid animal would be extremely unlikely.

As for the Fresh Express salad mix, you can contact the company and ask if you can get a refund.

Consumers who may have already purchased the recalled product should discard and not consume it. The authorities also recommended people who had eaten salads from that lot and found animal matter, to contact their local health department immediately. The best-if-used-by date is April 14, 2017. It was out of an abundance of caution that the Fresh Express people recalled the entire batch. Walmart has since pulled the product from its shelves.

No other Marketside brand salads are being recalled.

In a statement, Fresh Express said it "takes matters of food safety very seriously and rigorously complies with all food safety regulation". In manufacturing, additional controls including thorough washing and filtration systems as well as visual inspections that are created to eliminate unwanted debris.
