Dole Fresh Vegetables is asking consumers to "immediately" discard recently recalled Dole-branded and private label packaged salads because they may be contaminated with listeria.
The recalled products, which include pre-made salad items, containing iceberg lettuce were processed at Dole's Springfield, Ohio, and Soledad, California, production facilities, according to the recall notice posted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

About 36 products that were recalled from the Springfield facility were distributed to over two dozen states nationwide. Likewise, another 36 recalled products from the Soledad facility were distributed within 30 states, according to the recall notice.
The voluntary recall was initiated after testing found that "harvest equipment used in the harvesting of the raw iceberg lettuce material used in these finished products" contained the potentially harmful bacteria, according to the recall notice.
