Dole has recalled several of its bagged salad kits because of a possible health risk from Listeria.

The company said no illnesses have been reported in association with the recall, but they were voluntarily recalling 1,077 cases after a sample in North Carolina tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.

The recalled bags were sold at Krogers and Walmarts in Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

Customers are encouraged to check the product code and use-by date in the upper right-hand corner to determine if they should throw away a recalled bag. The codes recalled are:

  • Kroger Fresh Selections Greener Supreme coded N158 211B 1613 KR04 with use-by date of June 19 and UPC 11110 91039
  • Kroger Fresh Selections Leafy Romaine coded N158 111B KR11 with use-by date of June 19 and UPC 11110 91046
  • Walmart Marketside Leafy Romaine coded N158111B with use-by date of June 19 and UPC code 81131 02781

Dole said no other Walmart Marketside or Kroger Fresh Selections salads are included in the recall, only those listed above are recalled.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause foodborne illness if eaten. Symptoms may include fever, muscle aches and gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea or diarrhea.
