Dole Fresh Vegetables announced a recall of 756 cases of its Seven Lettuces salad due to a possible health risk from salmonella.
In a news release, the company said no illnesses have been reported in association with the recall that was issued after a random-sample test collected and conducted by New York state yielded a positive result for salmonella.
The cases affected by the recall have a use-by date of April 11, 2012, and have UPC code 71430 01057 and product codes 0577N089112A and 0577N089112B on their labels.
The salads were distributed in 15 U.S. states, including Alabama, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.
Salmonella is an organism that can cause foodborne illness. Signs of infection include fever and gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, diarrhea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
The illness primarily impacts young children, frail and elderly people and those with weakened immune systems. Most healthy adults and children rarely become seriously ill.
Consumers who have any of the recalled products should discard it and contact the Dole Food Company Consumer Response Center at 800-356-3111.
