CDC Recommends Not Eating Romaine

MMFC Pulls Romaine Lettuce and Products Containing Romaine as Precautionary Measure

The CDC and FDA are investigating an outbreak of E.Coli linked to romaine lettuce. The agencies recommend not eating any romaine or products containing romaine, including salad mixes containing baby romaine lettuce.

At this time neither the CDC nor the FDA have given any indication regarding the source of the affected romaine lettuce.

Out of caution, we have pulled romaine lettuce products, including whole heads of romaine, salad mixes that contain baby romaine, and all of the romaine lettuce used in our deli.

We recommend local and hydroponically grown lettuce from Slippery Hill Farm . We will monitor the situation and provide updates as received.

CDC, public health and regulatory officials in several states, Canada, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are investigating a multistate outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7 (E. coli O157:H7) infections linked to romaine lettuce. https://www.cdc.gov/ecoli/2018/o157h7-11-18/index.html
