Romaine recall expands to cauliflower, other lettuces

By on December 17, 2018

The California farm behind last month’s recall of romaine lettuce is now recalling red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce and cauliflower over E. coli concerns.

The recall covers products harvested on Nov. 27 to Nov. 30 at Adams Bros. Farming and shipped to several states across the country, including North Carolina.

None of the recalled products has tested positive for E. coli and no illnesses have been reported, but the company issued the voluntary recall “out of an abundance of caution.”

Adams Bros. has said the recalled products should not be eaten, sold or transferred.

The recall covers cauliflower distributed to wholesalers in North Carolina, Maryland, Arizona, California, Illinois, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Mexico and Canada.

The red and green leaf lettuce was California, Colorado, Oregon, Texas, Pennsylvania, Washington and Canada.

The recall was initiated after sediment from a reservoir near where the produce was grown tested positive for E. coli, the company said. Filtered and treated water from the reservoir may have come in contact with the produce after it was harvested.

Consumers who have purchased any of the referenced product are urged to return it to the place of purchase or destroy it. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-805-925-0339.
