October 14, 2015 — Dole Spinach products sold in thirteen states have been recalled because they may be contaminated with Salmonella.
No cases of food poisoning have been linked to the spinach.
The recall was issued after a bagged spinach product tested positive for Salmonella during random sampling by the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development.
Only certain Dole Spinach products are being recalled — not Baby Spinach or other types of salad. Recalled products should be thrown away.
The recalled products have an “Enjoy By” date of October 15 and the codes A27409B & A27409A in the upper right-hand corner of the package. The UPC 7143000976 is printed below the bar-code on the back of the package.
The spinach was sold in Connecticut, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Wisconsin.
Retailers and consumers with questions may call the Dole Food Company Consumer Response Center at (800) 356-3111, which is open 8:00 am to 3:00 pm (PT) Monday – Friday.
Salmonella is a bacteria that causes an estimated 1.2 million illnesses in the United States every year. Infection causes gastrointestinal symptoms (diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, etc.) and most healthy adults recover within 4-7 days. However, people with vulnerable immune systems can develop life-threatening invasive infections.
