(WXYZ) — Nearly 50 different types of bagged salad sold in Michigan have been recalled due to a possible health risk from Cyclospora.

According to the FDA, Fresh Express recalled dozens of different varieties of bagged salad due to the possible outbreak of Cyclospora.

The CDC reports that over 200 illnesses have been reported.

Cyclosporiasis is an intestinal infection caused by the Cyclospora parasite. A person may become infected after ingesting contaminated food or water. Common symptoms include severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, body aches and fatigue. The infection is treated with antibiotics and most people respond quickly to treatment.

The recall includes salads clearly marked with the letter "Z" at the beginning of the product code, and were sold between June 6 and June 26.
