A listeria outbreak, which killed one person and sickened a dozen others, has been linked to packaged salads made at a Dole processing plant, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.

The salads were prepared in Springfield, Ohio and then sent to six states: Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, according to the CDC.

The contaminated salads made by Dole are sold under several different brand names: Dole, Fresh Selections, Simple Truth, Marketside, The Little Salad Bar and President’s Choice.

Salads made at this plant have a manufacturing code on the packaging that begins with the letter “A”. The CDC recommends that you do not eat these bags.
