MONTEREY, CA - Dole Food announced a recall yesterday of 756 cases of bagged salad, citing salmonella contamination concerns, the Associated Press reports.
The affected bags of Seven Lettuces salad are stamped with a use-by date of April 11, 2012, UPC code 71430 01057 and product codes 0577N089112A and 0577N089112B, the company said.
The salads were distributed in Alabama, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.
Dole said it issued the recall because a random sample tested positive for salmonella. It said no illnesses have been reported.
Consumers are urged to throw out the recalled bags. Dole said it is also contacting retailers to make sure the bags are pulled for store shelves.
