Single head romaine lettuce recalled due to E. Coli contamination

Tanimura & Antle Inc. has issued a voluntary recall of their single head romaine lettuce packed on October 15, 2020 or October 16, 2020 due to a possible E. Coli 0157:H7 contamination. E. Coli as you probably already know, is most dangerous to the young, old, and those with weakened immune systems. So far, there have been no illnesses reported due to this contamination. 


Recalled Product:

Tanimura & Antle Romaine Lettuce

Packed on October 15, 2020 or October 16, 2020

UPC #0-27918-20314-9


The recall is the results of a random sample test by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development. It’s likely as many as 3,400 cartons were affected in nearly 20 states. The lettuce was shipped in cases containing 12, 15, 18, or 24 heads of lettuce per case. Each case contains a PTI (Produce Traceability Initiative) sticker that can help with identifying them. There are 2 codes: 571280289SRS1 and 571280290SRS1.

Due to the short shelf life of lettuce, Tanimura & Antle believe the lettuce no longer remains on the store shelves. If it does for some reason, they’ve asked retailers to remove it. If you’ve purchased the recalled lettuce, you should discard it or return it for a refund.
