Dole Salad Listeria Outbreak and Dole Salad Recall News – Twelve people across six states, including Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, have been infected with Listeria monocytogenes since July 5, 2015, according to a U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announcement. The CDC reports that the Listeria outbreak, which tragically includes one fatality, is linked to Dole packaged salads produced at the Springfield, Ohio, Dole processing plant.

Dole Fresh Vegetables, Inc., (Dole) has halted production at its Springfield facility, and announced that it will withdraw its packaged salads currently on the market that were produced at this facility, which according to public health investigators have the potential to be contaminated with the life-threatening pathogen, Listeria.
