GIANT Food Stores LLC and MARTIN'S Food Markets have removed Dole Italian Blend Salad Mix from sale, due to the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The Dole Italian Blend Salad Mix, 10 oz, UPC 7143000819 with a use by date of March 12, 2014.

GIANT/MARTIN's says it has not received any reports of illnesses.

Listeria is a common organism found in nature. Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. However, listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy.

Customers who have purchased the product should discard any unused portions and bring their purchase receipt to GIANT/MARTIN’S for a full refund.

Consumers looking for additional information on the recall may call Dole Food Company Consumer Response Center at 800-356-3111. In addition customers may call GIANT/MARTIN’S Customer Service at 1-888-814-4268 for more information. Customers can also visit the GIANT/MARTIN’S websites at giantfoodstores.com or martinsfoods.com.
