Dole Fresh Vegetables, Inc.is voluntarily recalling baby spinach that could be contaminated with salmonella.

The company says a random sample tested positive for salmonella.

The products being recalled are 6-ounce Dole Baby Spinach bag and 10-ounce Dole Baby Spinach clamshell. Illnesses are more likely to be severe in the elderly and infants, according to the CDC, which estimates salmonella causes about 1.2 million illnesses in the USA per year.

The recalled items were distributed to Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.

Because the products were expired, officials said they weren't being sold in stores any longer but fear consumers could have the products in their homes.

Consumers can locate the lot code and use-by date on the upper right corner of spinach bag, or on the top label of the clamshell.

No illnesses have been reported in association with the recall. Consumers who have any remaining product with these Lot codes, UPC codes and Use-by dates should not consume it, but rather discard it.

One of the products affected by the Dole recall.

Most people who become ill from a Salmonella infection will recover fully after a few days. Symptoms include fever, chills, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, headache, nausea, and vomiting. The illness primarily impacts young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems, according to the FDA.

For more information, consumers can call Dole at 1-800-356-3111.

The bulk of those are caused by food.
