Dole’s Hearts Delight salad package mix, tainted with E coli bacteria, has prompted a product recall in 9 states so far. The tainted lettuce was sold in a store in Canada. The voluntary recall, issued Monday, affects all packages of Hearts Delight sold in the U.S. and Canada with a “best if used by” date of Sept. 19, 2007, and a production code of “A24924A” or “A24924B,” the company said.

Last year Dole’s spinach products was found to be contaminated with E coli and was linked to three deaths.

Food contaminated with E coli may not appear spoiled. Symptoms of E coli infection may include the following: severe abdominal pain, bloody diarrhea, seizures, strokes, and kidney damage.
