The following food safety alert is from the cDC, FDA and the CDC and the CFIA on January 22, 2016.

Dole Salad Recall

Advice to Consumers, Restaurants, and Retailers:

Consumers should not eat packaged salads produced at the Dole processing facility in Springfield, Ohio and Restaurants should not serve, and retailers should not sell, packaged salads produced at the Dole processing facility in Springfield, Ohio.
The packaged salads produced in this facility were sold under various brand names including:

  • Dole
  • Fresh Selections
  • Simple Truth
  • Marketside
  • The Little Salad Bar
  • President's Choice
Consumers can identify these packaged salads by the letter "A" at the beginning of the manufacturing code found on the package.
At this time, there is no evidence to suggest that packaged salads produced at other Dole processing facilities in the United States are linked to illness.
This advice is particularly important for consumers at higher risk for listeriosis, including pregnant women, adults 65 and older, and people with weakened immune systems.

Dole distributed the salads to retailers in: Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Massachusetts., Maryland, Minnesota. Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Wisconsin, Ontario, New Brunswick, Quebec
No additional Dole facilities are affected. Other Dole products, including fresh fruit, fresh vegetables and packaged salads from Dole’s other processing facilities (with product codes beginning with the letters “B” or “N”), are not part of this voluntary withdrawal.
Retailers and consumers who have any remaining product with an “A” code should not consume it, and are urged to discard it. Retailer and consumer questions about the voluntary withdrawal should be directed to the Dole Food Company Consumer Response Center at 800-356-3111) (hours are 8:00am-8:00pm Eastern Time, Monday through Friday). Media inquiries should be directed to Bil Goldfield at 818-874-4647.

The CFIA also has a Candian recall of Dole and PC Organics products with a list of the reclled products here.
