INDIANAPOLIS -- The Food and Safety Inspection Service has issued a public health alert for salad and wrap products that were produced by an Indianapolis company because they may be contaminated with Cyclospora. 

The recall is for beef, pork and poultry salad and wrap products that were distributed by Caito Foods LLC. 

The products were produced between July 15 and July 18 and were sold at a number of popular retail locations including Kroger, Trader Joe's and Walgreens. 

All affected products have a "Best By," "Enjoy By," "Best if Sold By," or "Sell By" date ranging from July 18 through 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. 

Other common symptoms include:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight Loss
  • Stomach Cramps/Pain
  • Bloating
  • Increased Gas
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Vomiting
  • Body Aches
  • Headache
