In December 2021, Dole Fresh Vegetables recalled all salads that were processed at its facilities in Bessemer City, North Carolina, and Yuma, Arizona, due to a deadly Listeria outbreak.

There were at least 16 people infected with the outbreak strain of Listeria between August 2014 and October 2021, according to the CDC outbreak investigation. Twelve people were hospitalized and 2 people died.

The recall involves brand-names such as:

  • Ahold
  • Dole
  • Kroger
  • Lidl
  • Little Salad Bar
  • Marketside
  • Naturally Better
