In case you needed an excuse to not eat salad, here you go: Dole is recalling cases of baby spinach after a sample tested positive for salmonella. I think we all need to just play it safe and stick to pizza for a while, ya know? For our safety.
According to the FDA, 6-ounce bags with a lot code of W20308A and 10-ounce containers with the lot code W203010 are among the effected. Both are labeled with use-by dates of August 5, 2019 and were distributed to retailers across the U.S. Here's where they're being recalled:
Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
While no illnesses have been reported in relation to the recall, Salmonella was found during a random sampling. Since the product has expired and should no longer be lurking on store shelves, you're safe on the shopping front. But you might wanna double check your refrigerator for the greens in question. Considering it's a bacteria that causes fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain, a little extra caution is encouraged.
"This precautionary Recall notification is being issued due to a sample of Baby Spinach which yielded a positive result for Salmonella in a random sample test conducted by the Department of Agriculture in Michigan," the FDA said in a statement.
Per the release, no other Dole products were included in the recall, and only the Baby Spinach labeled with those Lot Codes should be a cause for concern. But, yeah, I'm still sticking with the pizza approach.
