More Vegetables Recalled For Same E. Coli Outbreak As Romaine Lettuce
Some cauliflower and other vegetables have now been recalled in connection with the same E. coli outbreak that caused the mass romaine lettuce recall.
TODAY reports the same California farm that caused the nationwide romaine lettuce recall is now issuing a recall for cauliflower. Adam Bros. Farming of Santa Maria, CA, has issued a voluntary recall of cauliflower, red leaf lettuce, and green leaf lettuce.
The recall comes as a precaution, according to TODAY. The recall was issued when it was discovered these three crops may have come into contact with the same E. coli contaminated water that caused the massive romaine lettuce recall. Thankfully, none of the products tested has been positive for E. coli.
The recalled produce was harvested between November 27 and November 30. The cauliflower was distributed to wholesalers in the U.S., Mexico, and Canada.
No one has died from the E. coli outbreak in the U.S. however many have been sick and some even hospitalized. Symptoms of E. coli infection include fever, abdominal pain, and tiredness.
