Dead Bat Discovered in Salad Mixes Prompts Recalls From Walmart

Precautionary recall of salads announced by Fresh Express

They were sold at Walmart stores in several states, which include Virginia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Mississippi, Louisiana, Georgia, Florida and Alabama.

In light of the recent events, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention wanted to remind the public that a great portion of the USA bat population carries the deadly forms of rabies. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention said two people in Florida reported eating some of the salad before the bat was found. Their risk of contracting rabies is low, but not zero, the CDC says.

However, officials said the virus does not survive long outside of an infected animal and transmission of rabies by eating a rabid animal is extremely uncommon.

The CDC stated in a press release that anyone who has eaten from the brand product but haven't found any "animal material" are in the clear.

- Fresh Express is issuing a precautionary recall of a particular salad mix after two people in Florida found a decaying bat inside a container!

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

But "out of an abundance of caution", Fresh Express says in a statement, all Organic Marketside Spring Mix salads from that production lot are subject to the recall.

The CDC is investigating the case and recalling a limited number of salad cases. The product was distributed "exclusively to Walmart stores".

After getting the report, both Walmart and Fresh Express acted quickly to get the product off the shelves.

There have been no other reports of animal matter. Anyone with questions can call the Fresh Express Consumer Response Center 800.242.5472 from 9 a.m.to 8 p.m.
