<snip> The CDC is warning people not to eat salads packaged under the name Dole, Fresh Selections, Simple Truth, Marketside, The Little Salad Bar and President's Choice. The salads are sold to restaurants as well. If you have one of these packaged salads in your fridge look for the letter "A" at the beginning of the manufacturing code. Those are the ones you want to throw away.

The brand name "the little salad bar" is carried at Aldi's. I know a lot of people here shop there.

I had a bag of unopened Dole fresh spinach in my fridge with the dreaded A on the bag.... In the trash that went.

What makes me mad is that it has been going on since early July 2015 and the recall finally comes out now that there has been 1 death and 10+ people ill. I really hope the 3 year old included in the age range of thise affected is not the one that died.

You can get your $ back from the store.

I don't have a bag in front of me but recently got granny a bag and she said hers didn't have a manufacturer code. Is that possible? Or was she not looking in the right place. She saw the best by date and was literally reading me everything on the bag front and back over the phone. She had her glasses on but at 93, I still don't know for sure. I tried looking for a pic of that area online but no luck. Would anyone tell me where that is found and I could ask her again?

I guess it is better to toss to be safe...

I couldn't find a manufacturer code either, just a series of numbers (no letters) under the barcode.

Upper right corner on the front of the bag, underneath the expiration date. Mine was on the west coast, so it started with B.

That's what I was thinking when I first read it. Mad

Some people need a sympathetic pat on the head ... with a hammer.
