Dead Bat Found In Salad Mix

Fresh Express has announced a recall of some of its prepackaged salad mixes after two people in Florida apparently found a dead bat in their greens. The pair had eaten a small portion of the product before finding the decomposed bat in a 5-ounce Spring Mix container.

The batch in question was distributed exclusively to Walmart stores in the Southeastern region of the U.S. Walmart has since pulled the product from its shelves. "Out of an abundance of caution," Fresh Express said in a statement, "all Organic Marketside Spring Mix salads from that production lot are subject to the recall."

Florida health officials, the FDA and the CDC have launched an investigation into the matter. According to the CDC, the Florida couple have reported that they're in good health.
