The product, which has "best by" dates through July 26, was produced in the company's Rochelle, Illinois, greenhouse farm and shipped to stores in Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Indiana and Michigan, according to the notice.

The company first issued its voluntary recall last week for nine salad products that were sold to retailers in Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa and Indiana after "being notified of illnesses among eight consumers, some of whom purchased or consumed the above products during the month of June," according to the recall notice.
