A popular brand of salad kits sold in stores around Georgia has been recalled amid an ongoing outbreak that could make you sick.

Dole Fresh Vegetables has issued a voluntary recall for several salad kits that were processed on the same line as a cheese that was recently recalled by Rizo-Lopez Foods for possible contamination of Listeria monocytogenes, according to a recall notice from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. Anyone who has purchased the affected products is encouraged not to consumer it and to "discard it immediately."

The recall affects the following Dole Brand salad kits: Chopped Kit Avocado Ranch (UPC 71430000195), Chop Kit Avocado Ranch Chop Kit Ranch A L'Avocat (UPC 71430000922), Premium Kit Southwest Salad (UPC 71430017012), Cajun Ranch Chopped Kit (UPC 714300002063), Premium Kit Endless Summer (UPC 71430010730), Supreme Kit Southwest Salad Supreme Kit Salade Du Sud-Quest (71430017111). Additionally, the President's Choice Brand Southwest Salad Kit Sud-Quest Kit de Salade (UPC 60383023195) and Marketside Brand Chopped Salad Kit Bacon Ranch Crunch (UPC 681131305440) were also included in the recall. All products have a best by date that falls within February 2024.

The recalled salads were sold in stores in several states, including: Alabama, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.

Listeria monocytogenes is the bacteria that can cause listeria, or listeriosis, a serious and sometimes fatal infection that can cause severe illness in high-risk groups like children, the elderly, those who are pregnant and persons with weakened immune systems, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Healthy individuals may suffer short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
