Dole Fresh Vegetables is recalling packages of baby spinach, according to the FDA.

The precautionary recall was issued after a sample of baby spinach tested positive for Salmonella in a random sample test conducted by the Department of Agriculture in MI.

The impacted product involves 6-ounce bags of baby spinach with the lot code W20308A and UPC code 0-71430-00964-2 and 10-ounce Dole Baby Spinach in plastic clamshell-style packages with the lLot code W203010 and UPC code 0-71430-00016-8.

The company, which announced the recall Friday, said a "limited number of cases of baby spinach" are affected by the recall.

Both have a "use-by-date" of August 5, 2019.

According to the recall notice, no other Dole products are included in the recall. Consumers who have any remaining product with these Lot codes, UPC codes and Use-by dates should not consume it, but rather discard it.

No illnesses have been reported.

Consumers with questions can call the Dole consumer center at 1-800-356-3111, which is open 24 hours daily. In some cases, diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. How do I know I have salmonella versus some other gastrointestinal condition? In these cases, Salmonella can cause death unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics.

Most people who become ill from a Salmonella infection will recover fully after a few days.

The bulk of those are caused by food.
