SALINAS, Calif. (KGUN9-TV) - A Northern California produce supplier is voluntarily recalling romaine lettuce that may be tainted with E.Coli bactria.
The lettuce was shipped to 19 states, including Arizona.
Salinas-based Tanimura & Antle said Sunday the recall is limited to a single lot of its Field Fresh Wrapped Single Head Romaine that was available at retail stores starting August 2nd.
The lettuce is packed in a plastic bag with the UPC number 0-27918-20314-9, and it may have a "best by" date of August 19th.
The company says some 2,095 cases of lettuce are potentially affected.
So far, there have been no reported illnesses associated with eating the lettuce.
