The California Farm Linked To The Romaine Lettuce Recall Now Takes Cauliflower, Red Leaf Lettuce, And Green Leaf Lettuce Off The Shelves

The California farm tied to the massive recall on romaine lettuce from last month is now recalling cauliflower, red leaf lettuce, and green leaf lettuce amid fears of an E. coli outbreak.  The source of the potential outbreak is Adam Bros Farming in Santa Maria, California, which was identified as at least one source of the contaminated romaine lettuce that led to an E. coli outbreak last month.   While no products have yet tested positive for E. coli, Adam Bros Farming said it is initiating the voluntary recall in cooperation with the FDA out of an “abundance of caution”.  “Adam Bros Farming feels a strong commitment to its customers and has worked for years to provide a safe and healthy food supply,” it said in a statement.  “The recall was initiated after it was discovered that sediment from a reservoir near where the produce was grown tested positive for E. coli O157:H7.  Filtered and treated water from the reservoir may have come in contact with the produce after it was harvested.”  Adam Bros Farming added that none of the filtered, treated water has yet tested positive for E. coli and that all E. coli tests are returning negative.   The recall includes cauliflower, red leaf lettuce, and green leaf lettuce that was harvested between November 27 and November 30 and grown in particular fields.
