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

Dole said that no illnesses have been reported.

The company said the bags are being recalled because a random sample tested by the State of New York came back positive for salmonella. No other Dole salads are included in the recall.

Consumers should throw out the recalled bags. Dole said it is also contacting retailers to make sure the bags in question are not available for sale.
