Food Recall

FDA Recalls Lettuce Over E. Coli Concerns

The Food and Drug Administration has announced a recall of romaine lettuce heads due to potential E. Coli contamination. Stores in 19 states and Puerto Rico received the affected produce.

This recall applies to single packaged heads of lettuce from the brand Tanimura & Antle with a “packed on” date of October 15 and October 16. Nearly 3,400 cartons, which contained 12 to 24 heads of romaine each, were potentially contaminated. No other products or package dates have been recalled so far.

Distributor Tanimura & Antle Fresh Foods Inc. urges consumers who have purchased the lettuce to dispose of it.

The affected product was distributed at more than 1,000 Walmart stores nationwide. The retailer has listed the stores selling the recalled lettuce its corporate website. The retailer lists more than 300 of its stores across Texas — from Abilene to Westworth Village — that stocked the affected lettuce prior to the recall notice.

In addition to its home state, the Salinas, California-based company distributed the lettuce to Alaska, Oregon, Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Indiana, Nebraska, Missouri, Tennessee, Wisconsin, New Mexico, South Carolina, Washington, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia, Massachusetts, Puerto Rico and Illinois, according to the recall notice.

For retailers and distributors, the lettuce can be traced through the Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) sticker attached to outside the case. The PTI codes are 571280289SRS1 and 571280290SRS1.

There have been no illnesses reported as a result of the possible contamination. However, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, symptoms of E. coli infection “…vary for each person, but often include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea (often bloody), and vomiting. Some people may have a fever, which usually is not very high (less than 101˚F/38.5˚C). Most people get better within five to seven days. Some infections are very mild, but others are severe or even life-threatening.”

Residents are advised to contact their doctors doctor if they experience prolonged diarrhea lasting more than three days or accompanied by a fever over 102 degrees, if there is blood in their stool or if they become dehydrated.

“Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials said in a prepared statement. “HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly. The condition can lead to serious kidney damage and even death.”

Consumers with additional questions can call the Tanimura & Antle Consumer Hotline between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at (877) 827-7388.
