A division of Dole Food has issued an international recall of one of its brands of bagged salad after a sample tested positive for E. coli.
The sample was taken from a store in Canada.
Dole's voluntary recall today affects all packages of Dole's Hearts Delight salad mix sold in the U.S. and Canada with a "best if used by" date of September 19th, 2007, and a production code of "A24924A" or "A24924B."
The company's move came a day after the Canadian Food Inspection Agency warned consumers not to eat Hearts Delight, a ready-to-eat lettuce mix.
The lettuce originated from fields in California, Colorado and Ohio, and was sold in Michigan and eight other states.
