In the news it was reported that 12 people became ill and one had died due to a Listeria outbreak that was linked to Dole packaged salads from the Springfield, Ohio plant.  Indiana was one of several states the packages had been shipped to.

Even so, it was a little jarring to see the empty shelves where the Dole Salads had been.   I buy several bags a week; usually don’t see a section this empty the area is expecting a blizzard.  I had to try to come up with something else and settled some soups and crackers, but looking forward to issues being worked out as the pre-packaged ones with dressing and topping are great to take to work or a quick to make up for dinner.

Dole’s Facebook Page

“To all our Facebook friends:

We wanted to immediately notify you that we have initiated a voluntary withdrawal of Dole salads due to a possible health risk from Listeria monocytogenes. Products subject to the voluntary withdrawal are identified with a product code beginning with the letter “A” in the upper right-hand corner of the package. Other Dole products, including fresh fruit, fresh vegetables and packaged salads from Dole’s other processing facilities (with product codes beginning with the letters “B” or “N”), are not part of this voluntary withdrawal.

The voluntarily withdrawn salads were distributed in the U.S. States and Canadian Provinces.

Please be assured, that your health and safety remains our number one priority. Every step taken to get fresh salads to you – from the field to the packing facility – is being thoroughly reviewed. If you have one of these above mentioned bags of Dole salads, please throw it away immediately. For more information on this withdrawal, visit or call our toll-free number, (800) 356-3111 from 8AM-3PM PST.”
