September 29, 2016 - From the FDA:

Fresh Express Incorporated, >Orlando, Florida is voluntarily conducting a precautionary recall of 480 cases of 11 oz.

In some individuals the consumption of an undisclosed allergen could be life-threatening. Fresh Express takes all matters of food safety very seriously, including the issue of allergens. Company procedures and programs stringently follow all mandated regulations and focus on preventive measures designed to minimize potential risks. Fresh Express is coordinating closely with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and is conducting a full investigation into this isolated event.
