Before you use that bagged salad in your fridge, make sure it isn't part of the Dole Fresh Vegetables recall.

According to Food Safety News, Dole is voluntarily recalling 1,077 cases of bagged salads, citing a possible Listeria monocytogenes risk. Listeria monocytogenes, one of the most virulent foodborne pathogens, causes listeriosis and is responsible for approximately 2,500 illnesses and 500 deaths in the United States annually. Symptoms of infection can include fever, muscle aches, and gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea or diarrhea. So far, there are no illnesses reported in association with the Dole recall.

"This precautionary recall notification is being issued due to an isolated instance in which a sample of Marketside Leafy Romaine salad yielded a positive result for Listeria monocytogenes in a random sample test conducted by the State of North Carolina," said Dole in a press release.

The products being recalled are:

  • Kroger Fresh Selections Greener Supreme coded N158 211B 1613 KR04 with Use-by date of June 19 and UPC 11110 91039

  • Kroger Fresh Selections Leafy Romaine coded N158 111B KR11 with Use-by date of June 19 and UPC 11110 91046

  • WalMart Marketside Leafy Romaine coded N158111B with Use-by date of June 19 and UPC code 81131 02781


Consumers who have any remaining product with these Product Codes need to discard it. The Product Code and Use-by date are in the upper right-hand corner of the package and the UPC code is on the back of the package, below the barcode. The salads were distributed in six states: Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

Retailers and consumers with questions may call the Dole Food Company Consumer Response Center at (800) 356-3111, which is open 8:00 am to 3:00 pm (PDT) Monday - Friday.
