That parasite can cause Cyclosporiasis, an intestinal infection which typically features symptoms such as severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, body aches and fatigue.

On Saturday, Fresh Express recalled products containing iceberg lettuce, red cabbage and/or carrots that display the product code Z178 or a lower number, and a "best buy" date that runs through July 14.

The salads were distributed in Pennsylvania as well as Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia, Vermont, Wisconsin, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia.

About 80 products sold under the Fresh Express brand name or under store brands, such as Aldi, Hy-Vee, Jewel-Osco, Walmart, Giant Eagle and ShopRite in more than 30 states are part of the USA recall.

A recall has been issued for some Fresh Express brand salad products after an outbreak of cyclospora-related illnesses in the United States.

China will also be included on the list if it allows entry to European Union travelers in return. The restrictions also apply to countries like Turkey, Russia, and Brazil.

Still, you should check to see if you have the recalled products in your home.

If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor. No other Fresh Express products have been recalled.

Fresh Express advised customers not to consume any of the affected products and to discard them immediately.

Some people do not get sick at all, while others suffer from a severely upset stomach.

If left untreated, the symptoms may last a few days to a few months.
