*Updated Alert* Outbreak of E. coli in Romaine Lettuce Linked to California; Check Sourcing

Tuesday, November 27, 2018  
Share |

*UPDATE* 

Based on new information, CDC is narrowing its warning to consumers. CDC is advising that U.S. consumers not eat and retailers and restaurants not serve or sell any romaine lettuce harvested from the Central Coastal growing regions of northern and central California. If you do not know where the romaine is from, do not eat it.

If romaine lettuce does have this labeling information, we advise avoiding any product from the Central Coast growing regions of northern and central California. Romaine lettuce from outside those regions need not be avoided.

Romaine lettuce that was harvested outside of the Central Coast growing regions of northern and central California does not appear to be related to the current outbreak. Hydroponically- and greenhouse-grown romaine also does not appear to be related to the current outbreak. There is no recommendation for consumers or retailers to avoid using romaine harvested from these sources.

For future reference, here are five tips on what to do what a recall happens. 

*** 

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is advising that U.S. consumers not eat any romaine lettuce, and retailers and restaurants not serve or sell any, until we learn more about the outbreak. 

The advisory covers all types and uses of romaine and directs immediate disposal of all current stock of romaine. Click here for the full CDC guidelines related to this alert.
