E. Coli Lettuce Recall | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

5 stars

The Nunes Company, Inc. based in Salinas California has initiated a recall of its lettuce for possible E. Coli contamination.  The recall applies to green leaf lettuce distributed under the Foxy brand. The FDA determined the source of the E. Coli contamination was the water used to irrigate the lettuce plants in the field.

While there have been no cases reported of illness from the lettuce, the FDA urges suppliers and consumers alike to err on the side of caution. To limit the possibility of E. Coli contamination, in August 2006, the FDA in conjunction with California’s Department of Health Services and Department of Food and Agriculture launched the Lettuce Safety Initiative to minimize risks and create awareness. This initiative has since been expanded to include spinach and other leafy greens.
