A brand of salad sold at Walmart is being recalled because of possible rabies contamination after dead bats were found inside two packages sold in Florida.

The five-ounce bags of fresh express organic market side spring mix were pulled from the shelves over the weekend.

The recalled salad was sold at Walmart in the southeast.

The CDC says a consumer in Florida reported finding a dead bat in the salad mix. The CDC is unsure if the bat had rabies, but the salad was recalled as a precaution.

Two people in Florida were recommended for post-exposure rabies treatment, even though they are not showing any symptoms.

The recalled salads have a best-by date of April 14th, 2017.
