Dole Issues Recall on Spinach Due To Possible Salmonella Contamination

Dole Fresh Vegetables has issued a voluntarily recall of bagged spinach due to possible contamination.

The company says the product in question has been distributed in 13 states including Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York.

The recalled bags contain the code The spinach is coded A27409B & A27409A, with an Enjoy By date of October 15 and UPC 7143000976.

In a press release, the company says the precautionary recall came after an 'isolated instance' where a sample of the spinach tested positive for salmonella in a random test.

Stores have been asked to take these bags off of shelves and consumers have been warned to discard them.

Symptoms of salmonella include fever, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, or abnormal pain, and is known to affect young children and the elderly.

Dole has not said how much spinach was being recalled.
