    Dole Food Co. has recalled 756 cases of bagged salads in 15 states, including Maryland and Virginia, because they could be contaminated with salmonella.

    The fresh vegetables division of Dole Food Co. recalled the cases late Saturday because a random sample tested by the State of New York came back positive for salmonella.

    You can check if you’ve purchased one of the possibly contaminated salads by checking their product codes.

    The bags of Seven Lettuces salad are stamped with a use-by date of April 11, 2012, with a UPC code of 71430 01057. The product codes are 0577N089112A and 0577N089112B and are located in the upper right hand corner of the package.

    If you believe you have one of these particular bags, throw it away or return the unopened package to your grocery store.

    The company says its cooperating with regulatory officials and that no illnesses have been reported so far.

    Dole said it’s contacting retailers to ensure the bags in question are not available for sale.

    Salmonella symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within eight to 72 hours of eating contaminated food.
