The BrightFarms Sunny Crunch Salad could have been distributed further, reaching more states. This product was made in the firm’s Rochelle, Illinois facility.

The traceback investigation identified the farm in Rochelle, Illinois as the likely source of this salad.

You can throw the salads away in a secure garbage can, or take them back to the store where you purchased them for a full refund.
