This voluntary recall is due to possible Cyclospora contamination on fresh Dole ™ blueberries. Dole Diversified North America, Inc. coordinates closely with regulatory authorities. No illness has been reported to date in connection with the recall.

Cyclosporosis is an infection of the intestines caused by Cyclospora parasite. A person can become infected after ingesting contaminated food or water. Common symptoms include severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, body aches and fatigue. The infection is treated with antibiotics and most people respond quickly to treatment.

The product lot code is located on the top label of the valve and is a series of numbers inkjet printed in black. Depending on where the numbers are printed, they may cross the wording on the label. The affected products have been distributed in four US states (IL, ME, NY and WI) and two Canadian provinces (Alberta and British Columbia). Consumers are advised to check any product they have in their home and discard any product that matches the production description, UPC codes, and product lot codes listed above.

No other Dole product is included in the recall. Only Dole ™ fresh blueberries with the exact UPC and lot code combinations identified above are included in the recall. Consumers who have any of the recalled products should not consume it, but rather throw it away immediately. Retailers and consumers with questions can call the Dole Consumer Center at 1-800-356-3111, which is open 24 hours a day.
