(Original story: June 29 @ 6:52 am): A number of salad products have been recalled from the Canadian market following an outbreak of cyclospora in the US.

Food contaminated with cyclospora, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) explained, might not look or smell bad but can still make people ill. 

Diarrhea, stomach cramps and nausea are some of the symptoms associated with the parasite. 

The CFIA said it was conducting an investigation into the products. 

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