Massive Dole Salad Recall in Missouri – Fatal Infection Risk
It's one of the most popular and common salad brands you'll find in Missouri stores and now it's under an urgent recall due to a potentially fatal infection risk.
This urgent bulletin from the Food and Drug Administration covers a multitude of Dole salad products that the press release said ended up in many Missouri stores. The statement says it was "being issued due to the potential for cross-contamination of cheese contained in certain master packs by cheese potentially contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes from our packaged cheese supplier. "
The FDA says this listeria contamination "can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems". For a person with normal health conditions, symptoms are relatively minor and might even be unnoticed.
