Dole Recalls Salad in 6 U.S. States for Listeria Risk

June 26, 2012

More than 1,000 bags of salad produced by Dole Foods Co have been recalled from stores in Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia because of a risk of listeria.

Dole announced the recall on Friday after a sample of Romaine lettuce tested positive for listeria in North Carolina.

The company said in a statement that no illnesses had been reported.

Dole did not immediately reply on Monday to a request for comment.

In 2011, more than 30 people died from listeria-contaminated cantaloupe linked to Jensen Farms in Colorado.
