August 12, 2019 — Dole Fresh Vegetables Inc. has recalled certain fresh baby spinach after a product tested positive for Salmonella in Michigan.
No illnesses were reported, but infections with Salmonella can potentially cause serious food poisoning illnesses.
The following products with Use-By dates of 08-05-2019 are included in the recall:
- 6-oz bags of Dole Baby Spinach (Lot W20308A and UPC code 0-71430-00964-2)
- 10-oz clamshell containers of Dole Baby Spinach (Lot W203010 and UPC code 0-71430-00016-8).
The products were distributed in IL, IN, KY, MI, NJ, NY, OH, TN, VA, and WI.
Because the recalled spinach is already expired, it should not be in stores, but customers may still have it in their homes.
Dole recalled the baby spinach products after a random sample was positive for Salmonella in a test by the Michigan Department of Agriculture.
The symptoms of a Salmonella infection may include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare cases, food poisoning with Salmonella can cause severe complications, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, or even death.
