Dole recalls spinach bags for salmonella

Dole Fresh Vegetables is voluntarily recalling its bagged spinach due to salmonella, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

Although that spinach smoothie may sound appealing, check your spinach bag’s number code before tossing it in the blender. Codes A27409B and A27409A are affected by the recall. The affected UPC code is 7143000976 with a sell-by date of October 15. After random testing by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural development, the product turned up positive for salmonella bacteria. The spinach bags were sold in 13 different states including Connecticut, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Wisconsin.

The company is requesting that grocery stores pull the products from shelves. The FDA is also requesting that you throw away a bag and do not attempt to clean the product or consume. Salmonella can cause severe nausea, stomach pains and diarrhea. Those with weakened immune systems such as children, pregnant women and the elderly are more susceptible to severe problems after consuming the bacteria.

Salmonella hospitalizes nearly 20,000 people every year and 380 people die on average due salmonella infections. If you or someone you know has developed a serious foodborne illness as a result of a product, contact our law offices today for free consultation.
