Residents all across the state of Arizona must be weary as they take their next bite of salad. A Northern California produce supplier is recalling romaine lettuce in Puerto Rice, Canada, and 19 states. The product company fears that the lettuce may be contaminated with E. coli.
Arizona, one of the 19 states on the list of potentially contaminated lettuce, must take extra caution when consuming packages of romaine lettuce. The voluntary recall was announced on Sunday night, after the shipment had distributed to retail stores and was available for purchase and consumption on August 2nd.
The produce supplier, Tanimura & Antle, is a family owned and operated business. They have stated that upwards of 2,095 cases could possibly be affected. Of the 2,095 cases, 1,969 were shipped off to Puerto Rico and 19 states, one of which is Arizona.
