Consumers are warned to discard and not eat Fresh Express Sunflower Crisp Chopped Salad Kits due to possible E. coli food poisoning.

As of December 10, eight people have reported sickness, while three have ended up in the hospital after consuming the salad. Illnesses were reported in Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin between November 5 through November 15. One of the sickened patients developed kidney failure.

State authorities, the Food and Drug Administration, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Canadian officials are investigating, but the salad kits are likely the culprit.

The E. coli strain has been identified as 0157:H7. It is possible the romaine lettuce in the salad kits are from Salinas, California. However, this version of E. coli is different from the E. coli strain connected to romaine lettuce originating in that particular region.

E. coli symptoms

The symptoms of E. coli food poisoning typically present three to four days after consuming the product. Dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps are among the side effects. Children and elderly persons, or those with compromised immune systems, are at risk of experiencing the worst of the effects.

According to the USDA, children five and under, as well as adults, may be susceptible to a kidney syndrome from E. coli food poisoning. The warning signs are typically easy bruising, decreased urine output, and pallor.
