Days after health officials warned ofa growing outbreak of Cyclospora infections“potentially linked” to certain store brands of garden salad mixes, more salads have been recalled and illnesses confirmed.

The food and Drug Administrationand theCenters for Disease Control and Preventionsaid in updated alerts Friday that the number of reported cases grew to 206 with 23 hospitalizations. The agencies are advising consumers to avoid select salads sold at Walmart, Hy-Vee, Aldi and Jewel-Osco stores.

According to the FDA, all of the recalled salads were sold in mid-western states and manufactured by a Fresh Express production facility in Streamwood, Illinois. Other retail brands of salad may be impacted, the FDA said.

“Consumers should not eat and restaurants and retailers should not sell or serve any Fresh Express products currently on the market that were made in the Streamwood, Illinois, production facility and contain either iceberg lettuce, red cabbage or carrots,” the FDA notice said.
