Dole Fresh Vegetables recalls certain Bagged Salads for possible Listeria Contamination

Dole Italian Blend product bag - FDA

(Best Syndication News) - The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the voluntary recall of certain Dole bagged salads because they could possibly be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Around 1,039 cases of bagged salads are involved in the recall.

The recall was announced after the North Carolina Department of Agriculture identified Listeria monocytognes during a random sample test. No people have become ill from eating the salad products. However, out of safety, consumers who have the recalled ready-to-eat bagged salad should not eat it.

The Dole Italian Blend coded with 0049N2202008, that has a “Use-By” date of August 20 and UPC number of 7143000819 are involved in the recall.

The salads were shipped to Florida, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Mississippi, and Virginia.

All of the other Dole bagged salads are not involved in the recall and are safe to eat.

Consumers who have the recalled salad should not eat it; instead, they should throw it out. Questions about this recall can be answered by Dole Food Company Consumer Response Center at (800) 356-3111, which is available between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. (PT) Monday-Friday.
