The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service issued a recall for certain beef, pork and chicken salad and wrap products distributed by Caito Foods to several stores including Kroger and Walgreen's. Indianapolis-based distributor Caito Foods LLC reported that officials with Fresh Express had issued a recall notice for chopped romaine that was used in the wraps and salads.

"All of the 25 product varieties are now out of date, produced from July 15 to 18 with the "Best By", "Enjoy by", Best if Sold By" or "Sell By" dates ranging from July 18 through July 23.

However, according to FSIS, no illnesses have been linked to the latest recall but it warns any consumer who is concerned about the illness to contact a health care provider.

The FDA is advising these products to be thrown away or returned to where they were purchased out of precaution. More than 286 people became ill and at least 11 have been hospitalized from that outbreak as of July 26, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The symptoms of Cyclosporiasis include loss of appetite, weight loss, cramping, bloating, nausea, fatigue, and other flu-like symptoms.
