Dole Fresh Vegetables is voluntarily recalling their bagged spinach product due to salmonella, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

No illnesses connected to the spinach have been reported, according to The Washington Post.

“Dole Fresh Vegetables customer service representatives are already contacting retailers and are in the process of confirming that the recalled product is being removed from the stream of commerce," read the company statement.

Dole is reportedly recalling a total of 2,800 cases, each holding 12 bags, according to a company spokesman.

The spinach was sold in 13 states: Connecticut, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Wisconsin, according to CNN.

Baby spinach and other bagged salads reportedly don’t fall under the recall. Affected bags reportedly carry codes A27409B  and A27409A and a Universal Product Code of 7143000976, according to the company.

Salmonella can reportedly cause severe stomach pains, nausea and diarrhea. Children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are reportedly most susceptible to becoming ill due to salmonella exposure.

Most people reportedly recover from salmonella poisoning without treatment within four to eight days.

Although many people can recover without treatment, about 450 people die annually from salmonella-related illnesses, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates.
