To find a common source of exposure depends on how many sources the packer gets the salad components from. Each source will have to be checked, possibly most of the individual pieces also. Noted with thanks - and very glad I don't buy these anymore.

John, the source is NOT Red Lobster or Olive Garden, but the supplier to those restaurants. That is the problem~the supplier of any ONE of the greens in the salad mix could be the source of the cyclosporia.
