Packaged salads recalled from Walmart after a dead bat was found inside

These salads went to Walmart stores in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia as well as Florida.

Fresh Express recalled its Organic Marketside Spring Mix from Walmart stores in the Southeastern United States Saturday because a dead bat was found in a packaged salad in Florida.
As the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s recall chart notes, if there’s the possibility of bat body parts, there’s a “minimal risk of rabies contamination.”
The CDC says it’s working with the FDA and the Florida’ Department of Health to investigate situation.
While Fresh Express’ recall notice tiptoes around the batness — “Fresh Express was notified that extraneous animal matter was allegedly found in a single container of the salad” — the Centers for Disease Control indulges no such subtlety on its website :
“Two people in Florida reported eating some of the salad before the bat was found. The bat was sent to the CDC rabies lab for laboratory testing because bats in the United States sometimes have been found to have this disease. The deteriorated condition of the bat did not allow for CDC to definitively rule out whether this bat had rabies.”
The CDC did say the risk of rabies transmission in this is very low, but not zero so the organization recommended the two eaters of the too-organic salad begin treatment as if they’d been exposed to rabies. Both report good health so far, according to the CDC.
As for the recalled product, it comes in a five-ounce, clear container. The Best By date is Apr. 14, 2017 with production code G089B19. Customers can toss it or return it to the Walmart of purchase. Those with any questions can call the Fresh Express Consumer Response Center 1-800-242-5472 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Eastern Time.
These salads went to Walmart stores in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia as well as Florida. But only Florida’s managed to pull a bat out of the salad hat.
