The Food and Safety Inspection Service issued a public health alert for salad and wrap products that were produced by an Indianapolis company due to possible Cyclospora containment.

The products which were sold at a number of retail locations including Kroger, Trader Joe's and Walgreens were distributed by Caito Foods LLC.

The products that were recalled can be found here. Many of the products include chicken, ham, turkey and beef. The products also all have a "Best By," "Enjoy By," "Best if Sold By," or "Sell By" date ranging from July 18 to July 23.

The FSIS says they are concerned that the products may still be in consumers' refrigerators and that consumers may be at risk due to the length of the Cyclospora incubation period. 

Cyclospora is an intestinal illness by a microscopic parasite that is transmitted contaminated food or water, according to the CDC. 

It can take up to a week before someone who becomes infected shows any signs or symptoms of the illness, which infects the small intestine and usually causes watery diarrhea with frequent, sometimes explosive bowl movements.
