Dole Fresh Vegetables has issued a voluntary precautionary recall of Dole-branded and private label packaged salads processed at two of its facilities due to possible contamination of Listeria monocytogenes, the Food and Drug Administration announced Wednesday.

The affected salads were processed at the company’s facilities in Bessemer City, NC and Yuma, AZ.

Operations at these facilities are being suspended temporarily for extensive cleaning and sanitizing.

Products under the recall have a product lot code beginning with the letter “N” or “Y” located in the upper right-hand corner of the package.

They will also have a “Best if Used By” date between November 30, 2021, and January 8, 2022.

The recall is out of an abundance of caution.

Consumers who have any of these products should throw them out.

For more information on the recall, call the Dole Consumer Response Center at 800-356-3111 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Pacific Time.
