Insect Infestation alert - Romaine Lettuce

August 6 2019 from the CRC:

In recent weeks, there has been a higher level of insect infestation in romaine lettuce. To ensure clean produce during this time, Rabbi Langer, the cRc Rabbinic Coordinator overseeing cRc vegetable checking programs, has been closely monitoring cRc certified produce. He discovered that some batches of cRc certified pre-checked lettuce sold from Wednesday July 31 through August 6 at Marriano’s, located at 3358 West Touhy Avenue in Skokie, may still contain insects. Accordingly, any consumer who has purchased such lettuce may either return the product to the store for a full refund, or re-wash and check the lettuce at home using the “Thrip Cloth Method” as found on our website. We apologize for any inconvenience.
