Dole recalls Simply Nature and Marketside salad mixes over toxic nightshade


- Advertisment -spot_imgspot_imgspot_imgspot_img

In May Dole Fresh Vegetables Inc. recalled Simply Nature Organic Spring Mix 16 oz., and Walmart’s Marketside Spring Mix 11 oz. and 5 oz. because of its potential to contain hairy nightshade.

Hairy nightshade may refer to several different toxic plants, all in the nightshade family of plants. 

According to Colorado State University’s “Guide to Poisonous Plants,” nightshades may contain steroidal alkaloids such as solanine and have atropine-like effects on the nervous system inhibiting the enzyme acetylcholinesterase. Some nightshades also contain irritants such as saponins that cause salivation and diarrhea. Nightshades may also accumulate toxic levels of nitrate. 

The recalled products were pulled in May and were distributed in Ohio, Illinois, Indiana and Tennessee.

The recalled product was:
