INDIANAPOLIS — Salads and wraps distributed by an Indianapolis company and sold at stores like Kroger and Trader Joe’s are being recalled because they may be contaminated with Cyclospora, a parasite.

The USDA issued a health alert for beef, pork and poultry salad and wrap products distributed by Caito Foods LLC.

The items were produced between July 15-18, 2018. The packages feature a “Best By,” “Enjoy by,” Best if Sold By” or “Sell By” date from July 18 through July 23.

The products have an establishment number of “EST. 39985 or P-39985” inside or next to the USDA mark of inspection, the agency noted. They were shipped nationwide and sold at stores including Kroger, Trader Joe’s and Walgreens. 

Each product had a unique code or label. 

Cyclospora is an illness caused by an internal parasite, which has an incubation period of 2-14 days, which would include dates through August 6.

The USDA said it could be up to six weeks before any illnesses are reported.
