Information was shared around Thanksgiving on the recall of romaine lettuce and an outbreak of E. coli. The FDA since then have identified one of the particular farms responsible for the contaminated produce. But thats not all….
For precautionary reason, Adam Bros. Farming have decided to voluntarily recall their green leaf lettuce, red leaf lettuce, and cauliflower from the market. Although none of these items have actually caused illness or been tested positive for any strains of E. coli, there was a possibility of exposure while growing particular fields during harvest.
The company announced in a press release that they were cooperating with the FDA and issued a recall asking consumers to discard or return the products to the store for a refund. In 2018 between November 27th 30th the produce was harvested and distributed throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
The FDA has advised that since the outbreak consumers will notice a new labelling system which includes the harvest location and date. In addition to that the agency also warns any purchases recalled that was harvest in Monterey, Santa Barbara, and San Benito counties in California should be avoided.
59 people have become infected since the E. coli outbreak began, while 23 of them required hospitalisation. Both The investigation continues to be conducted by the CDC and FDA to determine where the E. coli outbreak originated from California farms.
If you purchased one of the above items, throw it away or return it to the place of purchase. If you suspect illness due to an E. coli infection, proceed to inform your health care provider and report the case to the FDA.
If you have any Adam Bros. Farming products or were affected by the original romaine lettuce recall last month, let us know?
