Recalls Issued for Red and Green Leaf Lettuce, Cauliflower
UNITED STATES - Reports of recalls of red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce, and cauliflower from a Southern California grower hit the newswire late last week. The recall occurred due to an abundance of caution, a press release noted, because the categories mentioned may be contaminated with E. coli.
Currently, none of the recalled products have tested positive for E. coli, and no illnesses have been reported. However, due to a strong commitment to its customers to provide a healthy and safe food supply, the grower initiated a voluntary recall in cooperation with the FDA. The recall involves produce harvested between November 27, 2018, and November 30, 2018, grown in particular fields; it does not involve all of the grower’s products.
The cauliflower was distributed to wholesalers across the U.S. in Arizona, California, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, as well as in Tijuana, Mexico, and Canada. Red and green leaf lettuce was distributed to wholesalers in California, Colorado, Oregon, Texas, Pennsylvania, Washington, and Canada. Red leaf lettuce only was distributed to a wholesaler in Minnesota and Tijuana, Mexico.
