The salad mix, manufactured by Northeast Fresh in Chelsea, Massachusetts, was sold in seven-ounce bags and has a product code of Jan15/457034.  The Rhode Island Health Department is working to determine if this product was distributed elsewhere in the state.

No  illnesses have been reported in association with this recall.

Anyone who bought an item on the recall list should throw the product away or return it to the place of purchase for a refund, the health department said.

Symptoms of Listeria include high fever, sever headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
