Dole Child Spinach recalled in 10 states over salmonella fears


Bags of Dole Baby Spinach have been voluntarily recalled in 10 states for possibly being contaminated with salmonella.

“This precautionary recall notification is being issued due to a sample of Baby Spinach which yielded a positive result for salmonella in a random sample test conducted by the Department of Agriculture in Michigan,” said Dole Fresh Vegetables Inc. in a statement.

The Food and Drug Administration announced the recall on Friday, noting that a “limited number of cases” of baby spinach are affected. They include the 6-ounce bag of Dole Baby Spinach, Lot code W20308A (UPC code 0-71430-00964-2), and 10-ounce Dole Baby Spinach clamshell, Lot code W203010 (UPC code 0-71430-00016-8), with Aug. 5, 2019, as their use-by dates.

This product is expired, so it should not be on retail shelves anyway. But consumers are advised to check any bags they may still have in their refrigerators and toss them.

These bags of spinach were distributed in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.

No illnesses have been reported yet in association with this recall. Symptoms of salmonella infection include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and stomach pain. While most healthy adults and children generally don’t become very ill from salmonella poisoning, young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune system are more vulnerable.
