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.

The following health alert is from the FDA on December 31, 2015.

Thomas Produce Company of Boca Raton, FL is recalling 174 bulk-packed containers of Cucumbers. This product has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
This product was sold to distributors in Florida and Georgia between 12/15/2015 and 12/16/2015. All distributors that received this product have been notified as of the time of this press release.
The fresh, whole, green Cucumbers were sold in 166 cardboard bushel boxes (1 1/9 bushel size) with one of the following lot numbers ink-jet printed on the side: 1554311JDNK, 1554311HDNK, and 15143115DNK. These cucumbers were also distributed in 8 bulk cardboard bins(4'x4' size) tagged with codes 15NKJD-1554311-D, 15NKHD-1554311-D, and 15NK5D-1514311-D.
This recall notice is being issued due to an isolated instance in which a sample of Thomas Produce Cucumbers yielded a positive result for Salmonella in a random sample test conducted by the FDA. Out of an abundance of caution, the company has elected to recall all lots of cucumbers that were packed on the same day. The company has ceased production and distribution of the affected lots of cucumbers as the FDA and the company continue their investigation.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged to not consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the original place of purchase. Consumers with questions may contact Richard Wilson, Compliance Director, of Thomas Produce Company at 1-561-482-1111 Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. EST.
