    Thousands of bags of lettuce were recalled by Dole over the weekend.

    The company says it voluntarily recalled bags of lettuce due to a “isolated instance" of Listeria in a sample of Marketside Leafy Romaine found in the state of North Carolina.

    The exact states where the recalled lettuce was shipped wasn’t clear.

    The company says it is working with officials.
