756 cases of bagged salad are being recalled by Dole because they could be contaminated with Salmonella.

The recalled bags of Seven Lettuces salads were distributed in Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Florida, Alabama, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.

Dole Food Co. says that the bags are being recalled because there was a positive result on a random sample test performed in the State of New York. No other salads have been affected.

The use-by date on the recalled bags of salad is April 11, 2012 and they have a UPC Code of 71430 01057 and product codes 0577N089112A and 0577N089112B.

The UPC code is the number located on the back of the back beneath the barcode and the date and product code are located in the upper right-hand corner on the front of the package.

No Illnesses have been reported, Dole Food Co. says that this recall is in compliance with regulations and to ensure consumer safety.

Retailers are being contacted to ensure that the recalled product is not available for sale and Dole is asking consumers to throw out the recalled salads.
