SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) — The Centers for Disease Control says three more people — in Connecticut, Missouri and New York — have been added to the list of those sickened from a listeria outbreak linked to packaged salads made at a Dole processing facility in Ohio.

One person died and at least 15 people in eight states were hospitalized in the outbreak since July after eating salads sold under the names Dole, Fresh Selections, Simple Truth, Marketside, The Little Salad Bar and President's Choice.

The Dole facility in Springfield, Ohio, ceased production last week and voluntarily recalled all salad mixes Wednesday.

The most recent illness was diagnosed Jan. 3.

The Springfield News-Sun newspaper reported Thursday that inspection records showed the plant had proper procedures in place in recent years to prevent illness.
