September 18, 2007: Dole Recall of Hearts Delight Salad Mix for E. coli

Dole Salad Recall News

Dole Food Co. recalled its Hearts Delight salad mix on Monday, after a sample taken from a store in Canada tested positive for E. coli. According to company officials, there have been no reports of illness.

Dole Salad Recall Information – The recalled packages of Dole's Hearts Delight salad mix were sold in the United States and Canada. The product bears a “best if used by” date of September 19, 2007, and a production code of  “A24924A” or “A24924B.”

The product was sold in Ontario, Quebec, and the Maritime Provinces in Canada, and in Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee, starting on or around September 8. It may have been distributed in other U.S. states.

The lettuce hearts contained in the bagged salad were grown in California, Colorado, and Ohio, and later processed and packaged at Dole’s plant in Ohio.

This latest recall of leafy greens due to E. coli contamination marks the one-year anniversary of the E. coli spinach outbreak that caused the death of three people and sickened hundreds in the United States.

Symptoms of E. coli food poisoning may include abdominal cramps and watery diarrhea. The diarrhea may become bloody, and can lead to dehydration. Fever may or may not be present. Sometimes there are no symptoms at all. Symptoms usually resolve in 5-10 days.
