SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WTNH) — The Centers for Disease Control says one person in Connecticut has been sickened from a listeria outbreak linked to packaged salads made at a Dole processing facility in Ohio. One case has been reported in Missouri, as well as another in New York.
The CDC says one person has died and at least 15 people in eight states have been sickened since July from the outbreak. The outbreak has been linked to packaged salads sold under the brand names Dole, Fresh Selections, Simple Truth, Marketside, The Little Salad Bar, and President’s Choice Organics.
Last week, the CDC announced the salads were linked to a Dole processing facility in Springfield, Ohio. The facility stopped production and Dole voluntarily recalled all salad mixes produced in this facility.
According to the CDC, the number of sickened people from each state is:
1 New Jersey
5 New York
Officials say at this time there is no evidence to suggest any products produced at any other Dole facilities in the U.S. are linked to illness.
