Santa Maria-based Adams Bros. Farming, Inc., issued the recall “Out of an abundance of caution” after it was discovered that sediment from a reservoir near where the produce was grown tested positive for E. coli, according to a press release issued by the firm. “Filtered and treated water from the reservoir may have come in contact with the produce after it was harvested.”
Produce affected by the recall was harvest from Nov. 27 to Nov. 30, 2018, the company said. To date, no E. coli infections or other illnesses have been associated with the recall.
Adams Bros. said that none of the recalled produce has tested positive for E. Coli. The products’ recalled carton tag numbers can be found here.
Last week, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) reported that nearly 60 people had been sickened in a multistate outbreak of food poisoning infections linked to romaine lettuce.
Although romaine lettuce grown by Adams Bros. has been linked to the outbreak, not all of the illnesses reported have been, FDA said. The agency is recommending that consumers and retailers continue to avoid romaine lettuce grown in 3 California counties: Monterey, San Benito and Santa Barbara.
