Amid E. coli worries, California company recalls romaine lettuce
In this age of never really knowing where our food comes from, it's no surprise to hear that a northern California produce supplier is recalling a shipment of romaine lettuce that may or may not be contaminated with E. coli.
Tanimura & Antle, a Salinas-based supplier, is recalling over 2,000 cases of lettuce shipped to 19 states as well as Puerto Rico and Canada.
The lettuces (letti?) in question is the company's Field Fresh Wrapped Single Head Romaine, which hit store shelves on August 2; the not-super-sustainable produce was also wrapped in a plastic bag.
The UPC number of the affected lots is 0-27918-20314-9, with a "best by" date of August 19. So really, if you were gonna get E. coli, you likely have it by now. Or you have gross, mouldering produce in your fridge that should be thrown out immediately.
So far, no cases of E. coli have been reported.
