Just when we thought that the recalls had finally stopped, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency issues another recall statement. CFIA is recalling U.S. cauliflower, red and green lettuce products sold across Canada.
Last month, North America was hit by a deadly romaine lettuce recall due to an E. coli outbreak. Last week, Kimberly-Clark announced that U By Kotex Sleek tampons was being recalled across Canada and the United States after receiving reports that pieces of the tampon were left behind inside of the body, causing consumers to seek medical attention.
Now, the CFIA is announcing cauliflower, red leaf lettuce and green leaf lettuce from the United States sold in Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick could be contaminated with E. coli bacteria.
The produce in question was grown in the United States by Adam Bros. Farming Inc. in Santa Maria, California. The products were sold across the Canadian provinces listed above but could have also been sold in other provinces as well.
The CFIA has stated that if you believe you've become sick from consuming a recalled product, please contact your doctor. Make sure to check to see if you have the recalled products in your home. If you do have recalled produce, make sure it is thrown away or returned to the store.
If you're ever unsure if you have a recalled product, contact the location where it was purchased to inquire.
