Spinach salads recalled over salmonella risk

Posted on October 20, 2015 11:43 pm under Defective Food Product

On October 13, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that a limited number of bagged spinach salads were voluntarily recalled nationwide by Dole Fresh Vegetables after testing positive for salmonella in a random sample testing conducted by the laboratory division of the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Salmonella can negatively affect anyone, but it often has the most severe effects on those with weakened immune systems, including children and the elderly.

The recalled products are under the codes A27409A andA27409B. The code label and an “Enjoy By” date of October 15 are placed on the upper right hand corner of the bagged salads. The products were distributed to several states, including Wisconsin.

While salmonella does not necessarily cause serious illness, complications may occur in some cases and in the most extreme circumstances, could result in death.
