Dole recalls spinach sold in Pennsylvania, New Jersey


Dole is recalling what the company is deeming a limited number of cases of bagged spinach over health risks from Salmonella.

The company is recalling spinach distributed in 13 states, including New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

The recall is a precautionary one due what Dole is calling "an isolated instance" in which a spinach sample tested positive for salmonella in a random sample test, according to a statement by the company. The test was conducted by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

No illnesses have been reported in association with the recall, according to the company.

The product being recalled is Dole spinach coded A27409B and A27409A with an "Enjoy By" date of Oct. 15 and UPC 7143000976. The product code and "Enjoy By" date are in the upper right-hand corner of the package; the UPC code is on the back of the package, below the barcode.

Neither baby spinach nor any other salads are included in the recall, according to Dole. Consumers who have any remaining product should dispose of the product. Retailers and customers with questions may call the Dole Food Company Consumer Response Center at 800-356-3111.

Symptoms of a salmonella infection may include fever and gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, diarrhea, vomiting or abnormal pain.
