Recall Round-Up: August 3, 2018

Every week we scour the internet to bring you the latest information on product and automotive recalls in this recurring series: Recall Round-Up.

This week’s Recall Round-Up details the most recent food-borne illness related recall and a power supply unit that poses a fire hazard.

  • Romaine Lettuce – Caito Foods

    Several retail outlets and restaurants announced a recall of their food items because they contained Cyclospora contaminated romaine lettuce. This contaminate was recently found to be the cause of a widespread illness outbreak in McDonald’s salads. Caito Foods distributes prepackaged items with romaine lettuce supplied by Fresh Express. The pre-packaged food items were sold to Walgreens, Trader Joe’s, and Kroger among others. Fresh Expressed issued a statement that the FDA took samples from already-expired products that were packaged in ‘clear, plastic, multi-pound packs that did not display the fresh express logo and were not marked or labeled for retail sale to consumers.’ Nevertheless, they issued a precautionary recall at the end of July. The salads and wraps have a best buy date of 7/21-7/23/18. For a complete list of items included in this recall click here. Caito Foods asks that you do not consume the product and either throw it away or return the product to the place of purchase for a refund.


  • Zebra Printer Power Supply

    Zebra has expanded a recall initiated December 2016 to include power supply units sold as after-market kits for their desktop and card printers. The power supply units have the potential to overheat and pose a fire hazard. Nearly 1.3 million units have now been included in this voluntary recall. Zebra has set up a verification site to confirm if your power supply unit is affected. Visit them online here.
