California-based grower Tanimura & Antle has announced a romaine lettuce recall that impacts product it shipped to 20 states.
The company is recalling packages of its single-head romaine lettuce with a packed on date of 10/15/2020 or 10/16/2020 and a UPC number of 0-27918-20314-9. The culprit — E. coli again.
The recall is effective in the following states plus Peurto Rico:
Illinois, Alaska, California, Oregon, Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Indiana, Nebraska, Missouri, Tennessee, Wisconsin, New Mexico, South Carolina, Washington, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia, and Massachusetts.
No lettuce-linked illnesses have been reported yet but for safety, if you ahve it, throw it out.
The recall doesn’t seem to ahve spread to other romaine lettuce so far. I was just at Costco today and saw its usual two brands of romaine hearts (regular and organic) on the shelves.
