FDA warns certain Dole prepackaged salads connected to E. coli outbreak

The Associated Press reports that the Food and Drug Administration is warning people not to eat certain Dole pre-packaged salads that have been connected to an outbreak of E. coli infections in Minnesota.
Although illnesses have all been associated with Dole salads bought at Rainbow Foods grocery store outlets in Minnesota only, salads carrying the same production codes have been distributed nationwide.
At least 11 people have been sickened by a specific type of E. coli that have been connected to the products. Two have been hospitalized.
The affected Dole products are:
• Classic Romaine, with a “best-if-used-by” date of Sept. 23, 2005 and a production code beginning with “B250.”
• American Blend, with a “best-if-used-by” date of Sept. 23, 2005 and a production code beginning with “B250.”
• Greener Selection, with a “best-if-used-by” date of Sept. 22, 2005, and a production code beginning with “B250.”
Dole Food Co. has issued a recall for the affected salad products.
