People in many parts of the world appreciate bagged salad. It is a quick and convenient way to get some greens in your diet without having to do a lot of chopping.

Then again, if you happen to be someone who enjoys prepackaged salads, you might want to check the packaging carefully. This is due to a salad recall being issued by The Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

For those of you who have bagged salad in your refrigerator, you might want to check the bag to see if it falls under the recall. That is especially true if you purchased the salad at a Kroger or Walmart, as they are part of the recall.

If you do have a bag of salad that has been recalled, the FDA is recommending that you throw it away.

You can learn more about the recall in this video:

The bagged salad recall was voluntarily issued on October 29 by Dole Fresh Vegetables Inc. The concern is that there may be listeria contamination in the salad. As of this time, nobody has reported getting sick from eating the bagged salad but they are still recommending that it be thrown away.

Here are the specific salad products associated with the recall:
