New Jersey on list for recall of potentially dangerous products

People all over the United States enjoy the convenience of Dole's bagged salads. Unfortunately, several varieties of the product are being recalled as potentially dangerous products. New Jersey is on a short list of 15 states where the affected products were sold.

The products that are subject to the recall have a "use by" date of March 12, 2014. The date is located at the top right corner of the package, alongside the UPC Code. Even though the use by date has passed, some retailers may not have removed all of the products from their shelves. Further, New Jersey consumers could still have one of these products in their refrigerators.

The reason the products are being recalled is due to possible listeria monocytogenes contamination. So far, the company has not received any reports of illness connected to the recall. However, since it can be difficult to pinpoint a food causing an illness, unreported cases are possible. The symptoms of listeria monocytogenes illness are diarrhea or nausea, muscle aches and fever. Anyone experiencing these symptoms that purchased on the recalled products may benefit from a visit to the doctor; the most vulnerable people are adults that do not have strong immune systems and pregnant women.

Any New Jersey resident that believes one of the Dole bagged salad varieties subject to the recall caused him or her to become seriously ill may file a products liability claim against the company. Many manufacturers do what they can to avoid distributing dangerous products, but it does happen. When it does, it is the responsibility of the company to not only recall the product, but also to do what is necessary to make it right with the public.
