Farm tied to romaine E. coli outbreak recalling cauliflower, other lettuces


Adam Bros. Farming, Inc. in Santa Maria, California is recalling red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce and cauliflower because as it may be contaminated with E. coli.

They were all harvested on November 27 through 30.

Adam Bros. Farming, Inc. released as statement saying, "Adam Bros. Farming, Inc. feels a strong commitment to its customers and has worked for years to provide a safe and healthy food supply. Out of an abundance of caution, Adam Bros. Farming, Inc. is initiating this voluntary recall in cooperation with the FDA."

The company said in a press release that none of the products had tested positive for E. coli and no illnesses had been reported. It said it had notified its effected customers.

The new recall came on the same day when U.S. health officials announced that Adam Bros. Farming was a possible source for an E. coli outbreak from romaine lettuce. But they cautioned Thursday that other farms are likely involved in the E. coli outbreak and consumers should continue checking the label before purchasing romaine lettuce.

The Food and Drug Administration said 59 people in 15 states have now been sickened by the tainted lettuce. That's seven more cases than previously reported, but regulators said they are fairly confident that the lettuce which first triggered the outbreak has been removed from the market.
