FDA advises not to eat romaine from Salinas, CA

Health officials in the USA and Canada on Friday told people to avoid romaine lettuce grown in Salinas, Calif., because of another food poisoning outbreak in the United States.

The advisory includes all whole heads of romaine, along with packages of precut lettuce and salad mixes - including baby romaine, spring mix and Caesar salad.

The CDC advises that consumers not eat and retailers not sell any romaine lettuce harvested from Salinas, California.

After last November's outbreak tied to romaine, the produce industry in the USA agreed to voluntarily label the lettuce with harvest regions. Wisconsin has had 10 cases, the most reported from the 16 states, the CDC said.

The document was altered in a "substantive" manner, but it is unclear whether it would have changed the origin of the FISA probe. Horowitz is expected to release his report on December 9 and testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee two days later.


The Center for Disease Control warns not to eat, serve and for businesses, sell any romaine lettuce that came from the aforementioned location. No common grower, supplier, distributor, or brand of romaine lettuce has been identified.

"But we think that consumers will not find it so easy to make that determination, and we would rather see them play it safe and choose other types of lettuce right now". The CFIA says it has taken measures to protect consumers and is implementing new actions at the border to ensure that any affected romaine lettuce products are no longer being imported into Canada. Sixty-five percent of ill people are female.

The latest recall follows a belated announcement last month that 23 people in 12 states were sickened by fecal bacteria traced to romaine lettuce between July and early September.

Laboratory evidence and interviews with the sickened consumers indicate that romaine lettuce from the Salinas growing region may be contaminated with this strain.

The Inspectorate said that at this stage in the investigation, the most efficient way to ensure that contaminated romaine is off the market would be for industry to voluntarily withdraw product grown in Salinas, and to withhold distribution of Salinas romaine for the remainder of the growing season in Salinas.

While the recall includes products sold under many different brand names, the CDC said the infected items have "Use By" dates ranging from October 29, 2019, to November 1, 2019.
