You may have heard recent news regarding an E. Coli breakout due to romaine lettuce.
According to our suppliers, we are not affected by this, see letter below:
To Our Valued Customers:
An announcement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated that it, along with the US Food and Drug Administration, are investigating an outbreak of STEC O157:H7 in the United States. At this time, there is no reason to believe that any of our products are linked to the Canadian or US outbreaks.
Although Canadian investigators have identified Romaine as a likely source of its outbreak of STEC O157:H7, the announcement from CDC was very clear in stating that it is still collecting information to determine whether there is a food item in common among sick individuals, including leafy greens and Romaine.
The situation is a dynamic one and we are following it closely. As any further information becomes available, we will contact you immediately.
