Salad recalled over risk of food poisoning
(CNS): As a result of a recall by Dole Fresh Vegetables of around 2,880 cases of salad due to a possible health risk from the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes, local supermarket Foster's Food Fair is notifying the public to remove all Dole Italian Blend Salads with UPC number 000 71430 00819 “Best By Date” 19 June from their homes. Although the date has passed the supermarket management said it was still warning consumers because at times people may not always look at expiration dates. “We are urging the public that if they do have this product check it before using,” Foster’s said Thursday afternoon.
The Product Code and Use-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.
No illnesses have been reported in association with the recall. This precautionary recall notification is being issued due to an isolated instance in which one package of Dole Italian Blend salad yielded a positive result for Listeria monocytogenes in a random sample test collected and conducted by the Ohio Department of Agriculture.
Listeria monocytogenes is a bacterium that can cause food borne illness in a person who eats a food item contaminated with it. Symptoms of infection may include fever, muscle aches, gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea or diarrhea. If it spreads to the nervous system symptoms may include headache, stiff neck or confusion. The illness primarily impacts pregnant women and adults with weakened immune systems. Most healthy adults and children rarely become seriously ill.
We encourage all customers who have purchased this product to return the affected product to their Foster’s Food Fair IGA of purchase for a full refund.
The Product Codes are 0049A157201A, 0049A157201B, 0049A157202A, 0049A157202B, 0686A157202A, 0686A157202B
