Bags of salad distributed by Dole Fresh Vegetables are being recalled after a test by the state of New York found some packages of their Dole Seven Lettuces product could possibly be contaminated with salmonella.

Over 15 states, 756 cases are included in the recall, but so far there’s no information about which retailers were involved in distributing the salad. The states included are: Alabama, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.
