Dole is recalling salads with iceberg lettuce processed at Soledad, California and Springfield, Ohio facilities because they may be contaminated with Listeria. The salads were distributed widely, and Massachusetts was among the states that received packages from the Ohio plant.READ MORE: Man In 'Grave Condition' After South Shore Plaza Shooting In Braintree; No Arrests Made Yet
