Toss your salad

According to the press release, Dole Fresh Vegetables is voluntarily recalling 1,077 cases of bagged salad. The following products being recalled were sold at Kroger and Wal-Mart stores in six states (Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia):

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

The Product Code and Use-by date is located in the upper right corner of the package, and the UPC code is on the back. If your bagged salad matches these numbers, throw it away.

Possible contamination

Although no illnesses have been associated with these bagged salads, the recall was issued after a random sample test yielded a positive result for Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria is a bacteria and foodborne pathogen that can cause fever, muscle aches, nausea and diarrhea.
