A salad sold in Walmart has been recalled after a dead bat was found inside the package.

A recall has been issued for a packaged salad after a dead bat was found inside a container.

Fresh Express issued a recall for a limited number of cases of Organic Marketside Spring Mix sold at Walmart.

The recall was issued after a dead bat was found in a package of salad purchased in Florida.

Officials say two people ate the salad before the bat was found in the package.

They have been tested for rabies.
