Dole Fresh Vegetables announces the recall of salad kits due to Listeria monocytogenes

Dole Fresh Vegetables, Inc. (Monterey, CA) recalled from the market a limited number of Dole-branded and private label salad kits, which were processed on the same line as a cheese that has been recalled by Rizo-Lopez Foods, for the possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes. This recall notification is being issued due to the potential for cross-contamination of cheese contained in masterpacks by cheese potentially contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes from the packaged cheese supplier. At this time, we are unaware of any specific illnesses associated with the products. The recalled products include Dole, President’s Choice, and Marketside brands. Recalled salad items were distributed in AL, CA, CT, FL, GA, IN, KY, LA, MA, MD, MI, MN, MO, MS, NC, NV, NY, OH, PA, SC, TN, UT, VA, WA, and WI. Additionally, these salads were distributed in the following Canadian provinces: Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Ontario, and Quebec. @
