Dead bat found in Walmart spring mix prompts recall, including in Alabama

Dead bat found in Walmart spring mix prompts recall, including in Alabama

The Fresh Express salads that Fresh Express recalled were sold in a clear plastic container with production code G089B19, and only at Walmart stores.

The product has the production code G089B19, a best-if-used-by date of April 14, 2017 on the front label, and UPC code 6 8113132897 5 on the bottom of the container.

The people who found the bat said they had eaten some of the salad before they noticed the dead animal.

States affected by the recall include Louisiana, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. After lab testing, the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) could not determine whether the bat had rabies.

The CDC added a general recommendation: "Anyone who ate the recalled salad product and found animal material in it [should] contact their health department for evaluation". CDC is not aware of any other reports of bat material found in packaged salads. Federal officials say they are recommending that the pair start post-exposure rabies treatment. It was out of an abundance of caution that the Fresh Express people recalled the entire batch. No other Marketside salads are under the recall, and this recall is being done as a precaution.

According to the report from NPR News, the recall of the salad batch was announced on Saturday. All remaining packages of salad from the same lot have been removed from all store locations where the salad was sold.

Walmart acted quickly to remove the product from store shelves.

In a statement, Fresh Express said it "takes matters of food safety very seriously and rigorously complies with all food safety regulation".
