Recalled product Dole

Dole Fresh Vegetables is recalling baby spinach sold in 10 states after a random sample tested positive for salmonella.

The products being recalled are 6-ounce Dole Baby Spinach bag and 10-ounce Dole Baby Spinach clamshell.

Salmonella is an organism that can sicken people who eat food contaminated with it. Only the specific Baby Spinach products listed, with the exact Lot codes, UPC codes and Use-by dates identified above, are included in the recall. Most healthy adults and children rarely become seriously ill after exposure to salmonella.

The affected cases of baby spinach were sold at stores in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

They were sold in several states, including OH, however, the product is expired and would no longer be on store shelves.

Both have a "use-by-date" of August 5, 2019.

Dog owners look out, toxic algae seen in MI lakes
What began as a typical puppy playdate between 3 dogs turned deadly this weekend after an encounter with blue-green algae. The third dog - a therapy dog named Harpo - fell ill and started to show signs of liver failure shortly after.

Consumers with this product should throw them away. Customers with questions can call the Dole Customer Center at 1-800-356-3111.

Officials say no illnesses have been reported in association with the recall. How do I know I have salmonella versus some other gastrointestinal condition?

The illness primarily impacts young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

An estimated 1.2 million illnesses in the United States are caused by salmonella every year, including 23,000 hospitalizations and 450 deaths.

Symptoms include diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps.

Symptoms usually start within six hours to four days after getting infected and usually last up to seven days.
