More prepackaged salads recalled due to listeria

Local News

Dole issued a precautionary recall of the salads on Friday, after a sample test detected listeria bacteria in a random bag. The FDA said no illnesses had been reported at that time. (FDA)

(WWTI) — Dole Fresh Vegetables, Inc. is voluntarily recalling more of its pre-packed salads due to possible health risks from Listeria monocytogenes.

Previously on December 27, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed that three individuals have died from Listeria outbreaks linked to packaged salads. This came after two Listeria outbreaks were linked to packaged salad produced by both Fresh Express and Dole.

Most recently, on January 7 Dole recalled all pre-packaged salads that were processed at two of its production facilities, according to the United States Food and Drug Administration. This included products from its Springfield, Ohio, and Soledad, California production facilities that contained iceberg lettuce.

The voluntary recall was issued after harvest equipment used in the harvesting of the raw iceberg lettuce material used in these finished products was tested by Dole and found to contain Listeria monocytogenes. The organism can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. 

Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Products subject to the voluntary recall from Springfield, OH are identified by a product lot code beginning with the letter “W” and a “Best if Used By” date between December 22, 2021, and January 9, 2022. Products subject to the voluntary recall from Soledad, CA are identified by a product lot code beginning with the letter “B” and a “Best if Used By” date between December 23, 2021, and January 8, 2022.

Both production facilities distribute products to New York as well as other states across the nation. The full list of states the products are distributed to can be found on the FDA’s website.
