Romaine lettuce again at center of food alert [View all]


The United States Department of Agriculture is alerting consumers of the potential contamination of beef, pork and poultry salad and wrap products sold nationwide to stores including Trader Joe's, Kroger and Walgreen's.
Caito Foods discovered the issue when their lettuce supplier, Fresh Express, sent notification that the chopped romaine used in some of their salads and wraps was being recalled, according to the FSIS. The affected items were distributed nationwide to stores including Trader Joe's, Kroger and Walgreen's.
The potentially affected items were produced between July 15-18, with a "best by," "enjoy by," "best if sold by" or "sell by" date ranging from July 18-23, according to the FSIS. The products will also include the establishment number “EST. 39985 or P-39985” near the USDA mark of inspection.


Something that bothers me is the way the info about the romaine lettuce being recalled is only given down in the middle of the article.

This is at least the 3rd time this year there have been reported issues with processed romaine.

First one started around November or December, then went on into 2018.
Second was in April.
