Adam Bros. Farming Recalls Lettuce and Cauliflower

The company has notified all affected customers of all product that was recalled as of December 13, 2018. And the company is asking that all its customers notify the “downline chain of custody” to make sure the recall is full and complete.

The recalled products are Red Leaf Lettuce, Green Leaf Lettuce, and Cauliflower. The red and green leaf lettuces were sold to wholesales in California, Colorado, Oregon, Texas, Pennsylvania, Washington, and Canada. The red leaf lettuce only was sold to a wholesaler in Minnesota and Tijuana, Mexico The cauliflower was sold to wholesalers in Arizona, California, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tijuana, Mexico, and Canada. All of the products have the Adam Bros. Family Farms label. You can see the tag numbers at the FDA web site.

Check with your grocer if you bought any red or green leaf lettuce or cauliflower from stores in those states. If you have, throw it away immediately after wrapping it in packing material. You can also take it back to the place of purchase for a refund. Clean out your fridge with a mild bleach solution after you get rid of this produce. And wash your hands well with soap and water after handling the lettuce or cauliflower.

Sediment from a reservoir near where the produce was grown tested positive for E. coli O157:H7. The notice states that “filtered and treated water from the reservoir may have come into contact with the produce after it was harvested.”

The symptoms of an E. coli infection include severe and painful abdominal cramps, diarrhea that may be bloody, and a mild fever. Anyone who is sick with these symptoms should see a doctor.
