Fresh Express has issued a recall of certain cases of Organic Marketside Spring Mix after two Wal-Mart customers complained of finding a dead bat in their prepackaged salad.
According to reports, the contaminated prepackaged salad was purchased at a Wal-mart store in Florida. Concerns of illness were brought to officials attentions after the consumer reported that they had eaten some of the salad before the bat was found.
The deteriorated body of the bat was turned over to federal authorities, but the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been unable to rule out the possible existence of rabies. As such, the CDC recommended the consumers be treated for the disease.
Wal-Mart removed the salads from its shelves and is offering full refunds to anyone who purchased to product.
