Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Salad Kits are subject to this recall:

  • Dole branded Sesame Asian Chopped Salads, sold in clear plastic cello bags with batch/lot codes of B364016 or B364017, a best-if-used-by date of 01-15-21 and a UPC of 0-71430-00035-9

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

==> No item numbers, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

These Salad Kits were known to be marketed, distributed and sold in the US states, regions, districts or territories of Alaska, California, Idaho, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas and Utah although it is always possible these food products had wider distribution within the country. When in doubt, please contact the manufacturer for specific product information.

According to the FDA, this recall was initiated due to undeclared Egg in certain Dole Sesame Asian Chopped Salad Kits. The Dressing and Topping Kit (“masterpack”) designed for a different Dole Salad product was unintentionally packaged with the now-recalled Sesame Asian Chopped Salad Kits. As a result of this reported defect, a dressing containing Egg was included in packaging that did not list Egg in its ingredients list.

==> For information about Egg Allergy, please consult the “Allergens & Intolerances” tab on this site, located at the top of this page.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of these recalled Dole Sesame Asian Chopped Salad Kits and could be allergic to their Egg ingredients, have a close family member who is allergic or has previously experienced Anaphylaxis or are unsure of your allergy status, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat Anaphylaxis.
