Dole recalls salad mix due to possible Listeria contamination

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Dole Fresh Vegetables recalled its Italian Blend Salad Mix because it could be contaminated with Listeria.

GIANT and MARTIN'S grocery stores have removed the bags from their shelves following the recall. The product involved is a 10 oz. bag with the UPC 7143000819 and a use by date of March 12, 2014

GIANT/MARTIN'S says it has received no reports of illnesses to date, however consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious illness and even death. More commonly, listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy.

Customers who have purchased the product should discard any unused portions and bring their purchase receipt to GIANT/MARTIN'S for a full refund.
