The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued a food safety alert after eight people in three states have been sickened with E. coli linked to salad kits.
Four people in Minnesota, three people in Wisconsin and one person in North Dakota have gotten sick. Three of those people have been hospitalized, according to the alert.
The alert urges consumers to discard Fresh Express Sunflower Crisp Chopped Salad Kits.
“Don’t eat it. Throw it away,” the CDC warned in the food safety alert Monday.
The kits affected have the following UPC code, 0 71279 30906 4, beginning with lot code Z and a best-before date of Dec. 7.
The food safety alert comes after two other recalls for salads in the past few weeks over E. coli and listeria concerns.
