Dole has expanded its recall of salads linked to a Listeria outbreak to include products sold in more than two dozen states, including Indiana.

Dole Fresh Vegetables, Inc. said the Dole-branded and private label packaged salads were processed at plants in Springfield, Ohio, and Soledad, California. The company said raw iceberg lettuce used in the products was found to contain Listeria monocytogenes.

The recalled products from both facilities were distributed to several states, including Indiana.

The company issued an initial recall last month after 2 people died and 16 others were infected with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections, especially among young children, frail or elderly people, and those with compromised immune systems.

Healthy individuals suffering from Listeria infection may have only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. However, it can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.

The products from Ohio are identified by a product lot code beginning with the letter “W” and a “Best if Used By” date between Dec. 22, 2021, and Jan.9, 2022.

Products that are part of the California lot are identified by a product lot code beginning with the letter “B” and a “Best if Used By” date between Dec. 23, 2021, and Jan. 8, 2022.

Customers who bought the products should throw them out. So far, no illnesses have been reported in connection with the products included in the expanded recall.
