Precautionary Recalls of Green Produce


A sandwich company in Spokane WA has recalled sandwiches containing green leaf lettuce sourced from Adams Brothers Farming Inc. Lettuce cultivated by the Company was identified as being infected with E. coli O157: H7.  As noted previously, a contaminated ingredient distributed widely will result in consequential recalls of further-processed and packaged products. 

In a related report, a producer of pre-made salads located in Guadalupe, CA has recalled pre-packed items as a result of detecting Listeria monocytogenes.  Product was distributed to eleven states and five Canadian provinces.  The incidence of recalls due to Listeria contamination is attributed to introduction of routine assays by distributors and manufacturers.  It is far better to detect Listeria, Salmonella and STEC at source than to contaminate a food chain.
