Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following American and Canadian health alert is from the FDA and the CFIAon August 20, 2012.

Tanimura & Antle Inc. is voluntarily recalling a single lot of romaine lettuce because it may be contaminated with Escherichia coli O157:H7 bacteria (E. Coli O157:H7). The affected product is limited to Tanimura & Antle Field Fresh Wrapped Single Head Romaine. This product is packed in a plastic bag with the UPC number 0-27918-20314-9 and may have a Best Buy date of “08 19 12”. The product was available at retail locations Aug. 2 – Aug. 19, 2012. NO OTHER TANIMURA & ANTLE PRODUCTS ARE BEING RECALLED.
A total of 2,095 cases of potentially affected product were distributed throughout the US and Canada starting on August 2. A total of 1,969 cases were shipped to the following states: AL, AR, AZ, CA, GA, KS, KY, MD, NC, NM, NV, NY, NJ, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA, WA and Puerto Rico. This product has also been distributed in Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, Nunavut, Yukon, and Northwest Territories.
The recall is being conducted in consultation with FDA, and is based on the testing of a single random sample by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
The affected product was shipped in cases packed in either 12 or 18 heads per case. Retailers and Distributors can identify the affected products through a traceability code label affixed to exterior of the case. The traceability code label affixed to the exterior of the case is 5417802151. Tanimura and Antle’s #1 priority is food safety, and in an overabundance of caution we are asking that if any of the above Romaine is in the possession of consumers, retailers or distributors, the product be disposed of and not consumed.
Consumers with questions or who would like replacement coupons may call at 877-827-7388, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. PDT, Monday-Friday.
