Chopped Romaine & Freshway Foods Recall






April 15, 2018

Dear Valued Customer,

Please read the below release from Freshway Foods regarding a voluntary recall on processed romaine products. We are asking that you check with your cooks and notify them to discard any Freshway Brand Chopped Romaine or other Freshway salad products with romaine that they may still have in stock.

One important note is that all products we currently have in stock and will be shipping moving forward are in no way implicated in the CDC's findings. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they are released.

An Important Recall Notification From Freshway Foods

On April 13, the CDC issued a Consumer Alert stating that information collected to date indicates that chopped romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona growing region could be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7 and could make people sick. The CDC Consumer Alert can be found here.

Out of an abundance of caution, we have issued an immediate RECALL for ALL PROCESSED ROMAINE LETTUCE ITEMS with a Julian date of 102 and lower. Effective with today’s production date (April 13, 2018), all romaine is sourced from Salinas, CA and Florida and should not be affected.

To find the Julian date, please review the case label and identify the “TC” number. Any case with TC: 1 102, TC: 1 101, TC: 1 100, TC:1 099 or 99, TC: 1 098 or 98 and so on, is impacted by the recall and should be thrown away.

The full list of affected products can be found here
