Consumers living in Connecticut, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Wisconsin are advised to discard the product immediately.
Salmonella can cause serious illness with symptoms including fever, nausea, diarrhea and vomiting. Dole said that no illnesses have been reported thus far in association with the recall.
"This precautionary recall notification is being issued due to an isolated instance in which a sample of Dole Spinach salad yielded a positive result for Salmonella in a random sample test conducted by the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development; Laboratory Division," the press release read.
