Recall: Dole recalls limited number of salads

Dole Fresh Vegetables has issued a recall on a limited number of their "Seven Lettuces" salads. The affected salads may possibly be contaminated with salmonella, though no illness has be reported at this point.

More from the FDA:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - April 14, 2012 - Dole Fresh Vegetables is voluntarily recalling 756 cases of DOLE® Seven Lettuces salad with Use-by Date of April 11, 2012, UPC code 71430 01057 and Product Codes 0577N089112A and 0577N089112B, due to a possible health risk from Salmonella. Dole Fresh Vegetables is coordinating closely with regulatory officials. No illnesses have been reported in association with the recall.

The Product Code and Use-by Date are in the upper right-hand corner of the package; the UPC code is on the back of the package, below the barcode. The salads were distributed in fifteen U.S. states (Alabama, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin).

Salmonella can cause serious, sometimes fatal illness, in those with weakened immunes systems. It rarely causes serious illness in healthy adults and children.

If you believe you have the product that has been recalled, discard the product and contact the Dole Food Company Consumer Response Center at (800) 356-3111, which is open 8:00 am to 3:00 pm (PDT) Monday – Friday.

Though there are no specific store listings given, most mainstream grocery stores in the Columbus area carry Dole salad.
