Recall: Dole Baby Spinach
A few weeks ago, I purchased some baby spinach, instead of lettuce, since it seems to be recalled all of the time. Well, guess what? Now, the spinach has been recalled. Dole has recalled packages of baby lettuce, due to potential Salmonella contamination. The packages have a use by date of 8/05/2019.
Dole Fresh Vegetables, Inc. is voluntarily recalling a limited number of cases of baby spinach. The products being recalled are 6 oz Dole Baby Spinach bag, Lot code W20308A (UPC code 0-71430-00964-2), and 10 oz Dole Baby Spinach clamshell, Lot code W203010 (UPC code 0-71430-00016-8), both with Use-by dates of 08-05-2019, due to a possible health risk from Salmonella.
Dole Fresh Vegetables is coordinating closely with regulatory officials. No illnesses have been reported in association with the Recall.
This product is expired and should no longer be on retail shelves. Consumers are advised to check product they have in their homes and discard any product matching these lot and UPC codes and Use-by dates.
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.
Salmonella is an organism that can cause foodborne illness in a person who eats a food item contaminated with it.
Symptoms of infection may include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. The illness primarily impacts young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Most healthy adults and children rarely become seriously ill after exposure to Salmonella.
