Salmonella risk prompts bagged salad recall

Posted on

Dole Food has announced a voluntary recall of more than 750 cases of bagged salad mix due to the possibility that they have become contaminated with salmonella.

Dole Food is recalling 756 cases of bagged salad because they could be contaminated with salmonella. The bagged salad mix affected by this recall was distributed under the Seven Lettuces brand name, and the bag has been stamped with a use-by date of April 11, 2012 and product codes 0577N089112A and 0577N089112B, visible in the upper right hand corner of the bag. The product bears universal price code 71430 01057, which can be found on the back of the bag.

The bagged salad mixes affected by this recall were distributed for sale in retail outlets in Alabama, Illinois, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Wisconsin, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Tennessee, and Virginia.

The recall was initiated in response to an incident in which the salad mixes tested by the state of New York’s health department came back positive for the presence of salmonella. The purchasers of bags affected by this recall should discard them immediately, as they may be contaminated with salmonella, a condition that can lead to stomach cramps, diarrhea, and fever within 72 hours of consuming a contaminated food product.

As a personal injury attorney in San Bernardino, I hope this product is successfully recalled before anyone is made ill by it. If you or someone you love has been harmed by a defective or contaminated product, please consider contacting a Fresno personal injury lawyer.
