The recall over listeria contamination in lettuce has been expanded. Notice has gone out to 19 states and Canada. True Leaf Farms of Salinas initially announced a recall of 90 cartons of romaine lettuce shipped to Oregon, Idaho and Washington. But Church Brothers, which sells and markets the farm’s produce, says the recall involves nearly 2,500 cartons.
According to the company, most cartons went to institutions such as restaurants and cafeterias, which were notified about the recall. Only 90 cartons went to retail sales, and those were the ones mentioned in the initial announcement. The company issued the recall after a random check by federal officials found a sample tested positive for listeria. No illnesses were reported. The states covered by the recall include Alaska, Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Vermont.
