Salad is Healthy, But Watch Out For Its Dressing!!

If you have vomiting, diarrhea, fever, or cramps then you might be suffering from food poisoning, specially if you’ve consumed pre-mixed salad dressing products containing basil and mesclun, and you must consider consulting a physician. Because these products may contain a parasite that can cause food poisoning. According to the US Food And Drug Administration (FDA), symptoms usually develop about a week after consuming the contaminated food and "Cyclospora infection can be successfully treated with appropriate antibiotic therapy."
Therefore take care of your health, choose reliable clean restaurants, and avoid salad dressing at home. Everything is best when natural. Reuters
