Dole Fresh Vegetables is voluntarily recalling its bagged spinach salads with an Enjoy By date of October 15, which may be at risk of salmonella (a bacteria that can cause food poisoning). The recall is due to an isolated incident that took place when the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development; Laboratory Division tested a sample of Dole spinach for salmonella and results were positive. The company claims that baby spinach or other salads are not affected and no illnesses have been reported.
The spinach was distributed throughout 13 states in the US (Connecticut, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Wisconsin), but the only affected product includes bags with:
- Codes: A27409B & A27409A
- Enjoy By date of October 15
- UPC 7143000976
If you have any at-risk bags, discontinue consumption and throw them away immediately. Those with any questions or concerns can contact Dole Food Company Consumer Response Center at 800-356-3111.
