The Food and Drug Administration released an announcement explaining that a select batch of Dole Fresh Vegetables Inc. products are being voluntarily recalled. The recall is due to an undeclared allergen.
Dole’s Endless Summer Salad Kit is the product in question and a packaging error led to the incorrect dressing and topping kit to be packed with this salad. The dressing and topping kit was meant for a different salad kit and includes egg and fish, two of the FDA’s “big eight” allergens.
Due to the error, a specific lot of salad kits are being recalled because of that undeclared allergen present in the dressing and topping. The “best by” date, which is located in the top right corner of the salad bag, will be January 26, 2021 if it’s part of the contaminated batch. The lot code, which can be found with the “best buy” date, will be B00912A or
B00912B. The UPC code in the bottom right corner of the bag will read 0-71430-01073-0.
Impacted salad kits were distributed to retailers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin. Customers that may have the effected products in their home should check and see if it is the Endless Summer Salad Kit with the aforementioned best by date, lot codes, and UPC code. If it matches with those descriptions, customers are being urged by the FDA not to consume it and to call the Dole Consume Center, which is open 24 hours a day, at 1-800-356-3111.
