A recall was issued Friday for some Dole packaged salads sold under several brands.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced operations have been temporarily suspended at the Dole processing facility in Springfield, Ohio, after an investigation of a possible Listeria infections outbreak was launched in late 2015.

The CDC said 12 people were hospitalized from six states and one person from Michigan died as a result of listeriosis. One illness was reported in a pregnant woman.

The brands affected include Dole, Fresh Selections, Simple Truth, Marketside, The Little Salad Bar and President’s Choice.

These packaged salads can be identified by the letter “A” at the beginning of the manufacturing code found on the package. Products with “B” or “N” in the manufacturing code are not part of the recall.

You can call Dole with any questions at 1-800-356-3111 between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. Central time, Monday through Friday.  You can read more information about the recall on the FDA’s website.
