Are you one of the many people that are concerned you’ve gotten sick as a result of Dole’s recent Listeria contamination? If so, Dole Food Company has created a toll-free consumer line to respond to questions about the multi-state contamination of bagged salad that has triggered infections from Listeria.
Consumers should call Dole’s consumer toll-free line: 844-483-3865 and explore the company’s informational website. The multi-state outbreak of the dangerous bacteria has been linked to a Dole processing facility in Springfield, Ohio, and affects prepackaged salads under the brand names of Dole, Fresh Selections, Simple Truth, Marketside, The Little Salad Bar, and President’s Choice Organics.
For more information on what steps to take in the event of suspected food poisoning, please see this post.
