Dole Fresh Vegetables is recalling some of its bagged salads in 10 states, dues to possible listeria contamination.

The salads were distributed in Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

The recalled salads include:

24 oz Dole Garden Salad (UPC code 0-71430-01136-2)

24 oz Marketside Classic Salad (UPC code 6-81131-32895-1)

12 oz Kroger Brand Garden Salad (UPC code 0-11110-91036-3)

12 oz Salad Classics Garden Salad (UPC code 6-88267-18443-7)

Dole announced the recall after discovering a garden salad sample that tested positive for listeria in a sample test from the Department of Agriculture in Georgia.

The products have a “best if used by” date of October 25th, so most bags should have already been pulled from store shelves.
