Adam Bros. Farming, Inc. of Santa Maria, California is voluntarily recalling red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce and cauliflower harvested on November 27th through November 30th of this year out of what is being described as an abundance of caution, because it may be contaminated with E. Coli bacteria. Farm officials say none of the produced being recalled tested positive for E. coli and no illnesses have been reported.
In a company news release it was revealed that the cauliflower was distributed to wholesalers in California, Arizona Illinois, Louisana, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Mexico, and Canada. Both varieties of the lettuce were distributed to wholesalers in California, Colorado, Oregon, Texas, Pennsylvania, Washinton, and Canada.
It was decided to implement the recall after it was found that sediment from a reservoir near where the produce was grown tested positive for E. coli. It is possible water from the reservoir may have come in contact with the produce after it was harvested.
