Dole Recalls Bagged Salads for Salmonella Risk

submitted on April 15, 2012 by siggy38 in "Products / Gadgets"

Dole Food is recalling more than 756 cases of bagged salad in 15 states, because they could be contaminated with salmonella.

The bags of Seven Lettuces salads were distributed in Alabama, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The company said the bags are being recalled, because a random sample tested by the State of New York came back positive for Salmonella. No other Dole salads are included in the recall.

The recalled salads 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 product code and use-by date are located in the upper right-hand corner of the package, while the UPC code is on the back of the package, below the barcode.

    It's recommended to buy flat salad bags and not those filled with air.

    I stopped buying bagged salads a while ago when all the stuff was happening. I buy heads of lettuce take off much of the outer leaves and wash (rinse) thoroughly. I also buy red leaf and green leaf and rinse in a salad spinner. Thanks for the update siggy38!
