Possible Cyclospora Contamination Triggers Food Recall

Possible contamination with an intestinal parasite called Cyclospora has led to the recall of beef, pork and poultry salad and wrap products distributed by Caito Foods LLC, of Indianapolis, U.S. officials say.

The products were produced between July 15 to 18, 2018, with the either "Best By," "Enjoy by," "Best if Sold By" or "Sell By" dates ranging from July 18 through July 23, 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The products, which have establishment number "EST. 39985 or P-39985" inside or next to the USDA mark of inspection, were distributed nationwide.

The products should be thrown away or returned to the store, FSIS advised.

The incubation period for Cyclospora ranges from two to 14 days, which would include the dates of July 25 through August 6, 2018, according to the agency.
