MONTEREY, Ca. (AP) — Dole Fresh Vegetables, Inc. is voluntarily recalling cases of its colorful coleslaw due to salmonella concerns.
The recall was issued Tuesday after a sample of President’s Choice Colorful Coleslaw tested positive for Salmonella in a random sample test conducted by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

Eating foods contaminated with salmonella may cause a variety of symptoms including fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

The lot code and Use-by date are located on the upper right corner of the bag; the UPC code is located on the bottom left corner of the back of the bag.
The impacted products were distributed in select stores in three Canadian provinces (AB, BC, and SK) and in seven states in the U.S. (AK, CA, ID, MT, NV, OR and WA).
