Dept. of Health says listeria death was in Macomb County

The Michigan person who died from listeria lived in Macomb County, the Department of Health and Human Services said.

The CDC said the death was connected to a multi-state listeria outbreak that sickened at least 11 others. The Department of Health did not release any specifics of the person who died, aside from the county they lived in.

The CDC said the packaged salads made by Dole are the likely source of the outbreak. The salads are sold under several brands, including Dole, Fresh Selections, Simple Truth, Marketside, The Little Salad Bar and President's Choice. The manufacturing code on the package starts with the letter "A." The CDC says customers should not eat those bags.

The salads were made in Springfield, Ohio, the CDC said. Those infected were spread in six states: Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
