June 30, 2020

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — At least six people in North Dakota have been sickened with an illness associated with bagged salad mixes, according to the state Department of Health.

The cases are part of a larger outbreak occurring in Midwestern states. All six in North Dakota ate Marketside brand salad.

The mixed salads were sold at Hy-Vee, Jewel-Osco and Aldi grocery stores and are contaminated with cyclospora, a parasite that can cause flu-like symptoms. The other brands are Hy-Vee and Little Salad Bar.

Consumers in 12 states are affected by a recall of the products which have sickened dozens of people, including some who were hospitalized.
