Voluntary Recall of Romaine Head Lettuce

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–August 3, 2009.  Tanimura & Antle, Inc. of Salinas, California is expanding the geographic scope of its voluntary recall of bulk and wrapped romaine head lettuce.  Although the volume of cases from the single recalled lot has not changed, the company recognizes the possibility that some customers may have distributed the romaine in states beyond the original 29.  Therefore, the company is extending the U.S. recall to all 50 states.  The recall also includes Puerto Rico and Canada, as initially indicated.

The recall was issued after a random test conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture tested positive for Salmonella. No illnesses have been linked to the finding and no other products are affected by the recall.

All customers who received the romaine directly from the company were notified on July 21 and advised to discard any existing product, which now is well past its shelf life.  Romaine included in the recall was harvested June 25 – July 2.  Shelf life of the product typically is 14 – 16 days.

“We very much regret the inconvenience that the recall may have caused our consumers and customers,” said Rick Antle, CEO.  “Food safety and consumer health are our top priorities.”

Consumers with questions or who need information may call Tanimura & Antle at 1-877-827-7388 or may visit our web site for updates, www.taproduce.com.
