October 14, 2015 — Dole Fresh Vegetables has issued a recall for some bagged spinach due to possible Salmonella contamination.
No illnesses have been reported. The recall is being issued because Salmonella was detected in random sample of Dole Spinach salad tested by the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development.
The product being recalled is Dole Spinach coded A27409B & A27409A, with an “Enjoy By” date of October 15, printed in the upper right-hand corner of the package. The product UPC 7143000976 is printed on the back of the package below the barcode.
The spinach was distributed in Connecticut, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Wisconsin.
The recall does not include Baby Spinach or other salad products.
Dole asks consumers to throw away the product. 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 (PT) Monday – Friday.
Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause food poisoning. Symptoms of infection may include fever, gastrointestinal problems, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Most healthy adults recover without treatment in 4-7 days, but the illness can become life-threatening — especially for young children, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems.
