Dole Fresh Vegetables has recalled 1,077 cases of pre-bagged salad sold at Wal Mart stores and Kroger supermarkets in six US states due to possible listeria contamination.

So far, no related illnesses have been reported. The California-based fruit and vegetable giant has said that affected bags should be pulled from shelves by now, but the company is urging stores to double check for recalled salad bags. The recall was issued after a random sample of Wal Mart Marketside Leafy Romaine tested positive for listeria in South Carolina.

The recall involves bagged salad sold in six Southeastern states – Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia – under the Kroger Fresh Selections and Wal Mart Marketside labels. The affected products are:

–Kroger Fresh Selections Green Supreme, Product code: N158 211B 1613 KR04, UPC code: 11110 91039. “Use by” date: June 19, 2012.

–Kroger Fresh Selections Leafy Romaine. Product code: N158 111B KR11. UPC code: 11110 91046. “Use by” date: June 19, 2012.

–Wal Mart Marketside Leafy Romaine. Product code: N158111B. UPC code: 81131 02781. “Use by” date: June 19, 2012.

No other Kroger Fresh Selections or Wal Mart Marketside produce is affected. To figure out if you have a recalled bag, check for the Product Code and “Use-by” date in the upper right-hand corner of the package, and then the UPC code on the back of the package below the barcode.
