US: Dole Fresh Vegetables announces allergy alert and voluntary limited recall of DOLE-branded spinach due to possible contamination by walnuts
Dole Fresh Vegetables: Although no illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported, Dole Fresh Vegetables is initiating a limited voluntary recall of DOLE Baby Spinach products. This recall is due to possible contamination of these products by walnuts. The walnuts fell from a tree into spinach bins being delivered from a field and were discovered at the plant. No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported. However, people who have an allergy to tree nuts may have a serious or life- threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products or products containing walnuts.
Food safety is the first priority of Dole Fresh Vegetables, so although the contamination is not confirmed, this recall is being initiated in an abundance of caution for the benefit of our customers.
