(CNN) — Dole has announced a voluntary recall of various size packages of its fresh blueberries. The company says it's due to possible Cyclospora contamination.

The recall affects Dole's Fresh Blueberries distributed in Illinois, Maine, New York, and Wisconsin, along with two Canadian provinces.

Package sizes range from 6 to 24-ounce packages, with various "pack out" dates from May 28th to June 9th of this year.

The Cyclospora parasite can cause an intestinal infection through contaminated food or water, with a number of possible symptoms.

The Food and Drug Administration says no illnesses have been tied to the recall. Consumers who believe they have the affected product are urged to throw it away.
