Pre-packaged salads sold across Arizona recalled due to risk of listeria

TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Dole is voluntarily recalling pre-packaged salads sold across Arizona due to the risk of listeria contamination.

The recall covers several Dole kits as well as those branded “Marketside” for Walmart.

While there are two factories connected to the recall, only the one in California distributed products to Arizona.

Listeria symptoms usually start one to four weeks after eating contaminated food, but can start as soon as the same day. Symptoms include headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions, in addition to fever and muscle aches.

People at higher risk for listeria infection are pregnant women, babies, adults 65 years or older and people with weakened immune systems.

The FDA said “equipment used in the harvesting of the lettuce was tested by Dole and found to contain listeria.”

Products subject to the recall 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.

If you have any of the products, you should throw them away. As of Jan. 11, no illnesses have been reported.

The products being recalled in Arizona are:
