MONTEREY, Calif. — Dole Food Co.'s fresh vegetables division is recalling 756 cases of bagged salad, because they could be contaminated with salmonella.
The bags of Seven Lettuces salads were distributed in Alabama, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.
The company said the bags are being recalled, because a random sample tested by the State of New York came back positive for Salmonella. No other Dole salads are included in the recall.
The recalled salads are stamped with a use-by date of April 11, 2012, UPC code 71430 01057 and product codes 0577N089112A and 0577N089112B, the company said.
The product code and use-by date are located in the upper right-hand corner of the package, while the UPC code is on the back of the package, below the barcode.
Dole said that it's coordinating with regulatory officials and that no illnesses have been reported.

Salad doesn't need to be boring with a little imagination and a lot of hunger!
A Tesco customer got an unexpected fright when he discovered a bird carcass in his salad – and we’re not talking roast chicken here.
In a scene that sounds more fitting for I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, Paul Streeter of Weare in Somerset found the decomposed bird in a baby leaf and rocket salad that he bought in the Burnham-on-Sea branch of the supermarket chain.
After he’d presented the salad in a bowl to accompany a pizza, Mr Streeter’s girlfriend was unlucky enough to find the carcass when she served some of the salad onto her plate.
According to the BBC News website the bird was ‘decomposed and skeletal.’
Tesco has responded to the story by saying, ‘We take matters of this kind extremely seriously and are very disappointed to learn of this incident.’

Over the past few weeks I have been watching my waist, which is easy to do because every time I look, there’s a little more of it. Anyway, I came home hungry from the golf course today. I peered into the cupboard and reached for a small bag of Cheetos, but when I looked at the bag’s nutrition label and did the math, the calorie tally was just this side of 600—with 350 of them from fat. Bears should eat Cheetos before hibernating.Over the past few weeks I have been watching my waist, which is easy to do because... more
Often enough, when we think of healthy living, we think of eating lots of salads. Unfortunately, for the majority of us that means some lame iceberg lettuce, a sprinkle of basic store-bought dressing and whatever veggies we happen to have on hand.

These reusable produce bags by Blue Lotus are really neat. I always see reusable shopping bags available all over, but never reusable produce bags. And the best thing about this one is that it's made with organic cotton! It's very eco-friendly, made out of cotton and when you're done using it over and over again, you can put it in the composting bin and it will biodegrade! You can use it for all kinds of produces.
They have four different sizes small for nuts and seeds, medium for bulk food: rice, flour, sugar, and large bags for large leafy greens such as salad, kale, collards, you can bring your bags home with your produce in them, moisten them and put it in the refrigerator to keep it moisten and crisp. Don't forget to shop for your produce at your local farmers' market!

I went to Burning Man last week. I don't need to waste my time explaining it. You could check out articles, pictures, and videos on Burning Man, but none of them will be effective at capturing the 'ephemera' of the event. So instead of doing any of that, I'll show you some funny pictures I took there.
This photograph was taken during a heated card game between me and mah dawgs. The doberman eventually won.Note this game was not illegal at all, as all dogs were over 21 (in doggie years) and we played this in Nevada, a state that has legalized gambling.
This insightful piece of music advice was the provided entertainment in a Black Rock City portable toilet. This person is insistent that Bob Marley sucks. Today is a bittersweet day for Mariachis everywhere, who are no longer at the bottom of this man's list.
I got a fake tattoo. It's a varmint, with crab claws. He's suggesting that evolution is working out in his favor. I know this is only a cartoon, but I can't see how claws would be particularly beneficial to a rodent. They are already equipped with fleas armed with The Plague, as well as rabid teeth. Claws would be overkill.
This video could have been filmed in outerspace. But I'll let you in on a secret. It wasn't.
This me trying to take a myspace style self-potrait. I messed up though. This photo is too interesting, and doesn't convey a sense of self-loathing.
We signed up for a New Age-y organic meal plan. When the food was served it was good. But most of the time we found ourselves eating meals like this one. Celery and Red Vine salad. At very least we got our daily serving of Red Vine.
This is a video of the Man burning. This is the big pay off. A lot of people left before the man burnt. They missed all the traffic. I'd imagine that was more satisfying.

Ronald Neilly was working at an International House of Pancakes in Hallandale, Florida one Sunday morning when he accidentally cut off a fingertip while preparing an order. Neilly, 35, was immediately rushed to a local hospital by Department of Fire Rescue workers. But the severed fingertip (nail intact) could not be located by his fellow kitchen employees.
That was until, it turned up in the fried chicken green salad being consumed by

Ready for nettles and dandelions on your plate? Langdon Cook talks foraging, the next (cheap!) step in local food
It's been three decades since Alice Waters made microgreens a culinary cliché, and by now most diners take the lingo of local food for granted: chefs who raise their own heritage chickens, restaurants with hand-lettered blackboards that outline the lineage of every lamb chop, and salads that sport farmers' Christian names. But what if the next menu you picked up offered nettle pesto picked from the ditch next to Route 6? Or garlic-sautéed dandelion greens gathered from the overgrown lot behind the grocery store? As the meanings of "organic" and "local" grow ever more slippery -- and in lean times, when fewer folks than ever can afford to pay a premium for dinner -- are wild edibles poised to emerge as the next gastronomic zeitgeist?
Langdon Cook, the author of the new memoir-cum-cookbook "Fat of the Land: Adventures of a 21st Century Forager," and a popular blog by the same name, might put money on it -- but he isn't waiting around for the masses to catch up. Cook, an outdoorsman, amateur naturalist and former editor at Amazon.com, first began foraging as a trailside diversion but has spent the better part of the last decade getting in touch with his inner hunter-gatherer, schooling himself in the art of "shooting" razor clams, mapping out burn sites for signs of morels, and cataloging a veritable crisper-full of delectable weeds. That education -- combined with a year spent living off the grid in southern Oregon with his wife and young child, growing and canning most of their food and foraging the surplus -- proved a transformative experience for Cook, and inspired him to bring the gospel of wild food (in all of its muddy, wet, prickly and, yes, tasty glory) to the wider world. His message: Foraging food will make you a healthier, happier eater, a more thoughtful consumer and a more adventurous cook. And his best evidence? Himself. This is, after all, the same guy who once, in order to woo a lady, bragged about making a killer Egg McMuffin.
Now settled in Seattle, Cook does most of his foraging in the mountains and waterways near Puget Sound, but sometimes even a stroll around his urban neighborhood leads to an unexpected edible encounter. (Case in point: The dried buds of the lowly pineapple weed, a common sidewalk crack-filler and relative of chamomile, makes excellent iced tea.) Salon spoke with him recently about recession-proof dining, the large-scale sustainability of foraging, the hidden charms of the stinging nettle, and why it's time we all got out there and started searching for our suppers.Ready for nettles and dandelions on your plate?

A CUSTOMER shopping at a discount supermarket store in Germany found stems of a poisonous weed in mixed salad bags, triggering concerns about potential health risks, the store said.
Traces of senecio vulgaris or common groundsel, that can cause extensive liver damage if ingested in large amounts, were discovered by a customer with a specialised knowledge of plants in a Plus store in Hanover, northern Germany.
"It's hard for laymen to tell the difference from rocket," said a Plus spokeswoman. "We immediately took all affected bags off the shelves."
Samples were sent to the University of Bonn for testing, which detected more than 2500 micrograms of poison - 2500 times more than the recommended daily allowance - in 150 grams of salad, German media reported.
Consumer affairs minister in Rhineland-Palatinate, Margit Conrad, warned shoppers to be vigilant.
"Not everything that looks like fruit and vegetable is edible," she said. "No one should eat plants or parts of plants that have an unusual taste."A CUSTOMER shopping at a discount supermarket store in Germany found stems of a... more
