Westlake Village, Calif.-based Dole Fresh Vegetables Inc. is voluntarily recalling a limited number of cases of baby spinach

The company announced the precautionary recall on Aug. 9 on the Food and Drug Administration website.

According to a news release, the products being recalled are six-ounce Dole Baby Spinach bag, Lot code W20308A (UPC code 0-71430-00964-2), and 10-ounce Dole Baby Spinach clamshell, Lot code W203010 (UPC code 0-71430-00016-8es), both with use-by dates of 08-05-2019, due to a possible health risk from Salmonella.

Dole Fresh Vegetables is coordinating closely with regulatory officials, according to the release, and no illnesses have been reported in association with the recall.

The release said the recalled products were distributed in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The product is expired and should no longer be on retail shelves, according to the release.

The precautionary recall is issued because a sample of baby spinach yielded a positive result for Salmonella in a random sample test conducted by the Department of Agriculture in Michigan, according to the release.

No other Dole products are included in the recall, according to the release.

Retailers and consumers with questions may call the 24-hour Dole Consumer Center at 1-800-356-3111, according to the release.
