Dole will voluntarily recall bags of spinach salad due to possible salmonella risks.

According to a statement released on Tuesday, the recall applies to Dole spinach coded A27409B and A27409A, with an “Enjoy By’’ date of Oct. 15 and UPC 7143000976.

The bags of spinach were distributed in 13 states, including Massachusetts and Connecticut. No illnesses have been reported.

Dole is recalling the spinach after the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development’s Laboratory Division discovered salmonella during a random sample test of the spinach salad. Dole’s baby spinach and other salads are not included in the recall.

The company is asking customers to throw the recalled product away. Salmonella is one of the most common causes of food poisoning in the United States, according to foodsafety.gov. It can result in fever, diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal cramps and symptoms usually last four to seven days.
