PRODUCT RECALLS

Dole Fresh Vegetables has announced a recall of certain products produced at their Springfield, OH and Soledad, CA production facilities. Products containing iceberg lettuce fail to meet their product quality and food safety standards in that they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Therefore, out of an abundance of caution, they are recalling the select items identified below.

Products subject to the voluntary recall from Springfield, OH are identified by a product lot code beginning with the letter “W” and a “Best if Used By” date between December 22, 2021 and January 9, 2022. Products subject to the voluntary recall from Soledad, CA are identified by a product lot code beginning with the letter “B” and a “Best if Used By” date between December 23, 2021 and January 8, 2022. The product lot codes are located in the upper-right-hand corner of the package.

No other lots or Dole products are affected. Consumers who still have any of these products in their refrigerators are urged not to consume the product and to discard it immediately.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Questions about the voluntary recall should be directed to the Dole Consumer Response Center at 800-356-3111, Monday—Friday, 8:00am to 3:00pm Pacific Time.
