Heads up, consumers: Dole Fresh Vegetables, Inc. announced a voluntary recall of some of its baby spinach over possible salmonella contamination.

The company says a random sample tested positive for salmonella.

The products being recalled are 6 oz Dole Baby Spinach bag and 10 oz Dole Baby Spinach clamshell, both with Use-by dates of 08-05-2019.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause foodborne illness in a person who eats a food item contaminated with it. Most healthy adults and children rarely become seriously ill after exposure to salmonella.

The spinach being recalled has a use-by-date of August 5 and was distributed in 10 states: Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.

According to the recall notice, this product is expired and should no longer be on retail shelves.

The lot codes and use-by dates are on the upper-right corners of the bags and the top labels of the clamshells. No illnesses have been reported at this time.

No other Dole products are included in the recall.

Consumers with this product should throw them away.

Salmonella is a bacteria which causes an infection called salmonellosis. How do I know I have salmonella versus some other gastrointestinal condition?

Manny: Since coming back from vacation, I've had diarrhea and cramps.

People should visit a doctor if they have diarrhea and a fever higher than 102 degrees Fahrenheit; diarrhea for more than 3 days that is not improving; bloody stools; prolonged vomiting that prevents you from keeping liquids down; or signs of dehydration, such as: making very little urine, dry mouth and throat, or dizziness when standing up.
