romaine LETTUCE alert 5/16/18

Here is some information about where Produce Express procures its romaine from:

  • All romaine from Produce Express is from Field Fresh Farms located in Watsonville, CA. 
  • All of our chopped romaine is processed in Sacramento using Watsonville romaine only.
  • All romaine salad mixes contain Romaine from Watsonville, CA.

General Information: Per the Arizona Department of Agriculture, the Yuma growing region is no longer producing or distributing romaine. It is unlikely that any affected Yuma Romaine remains in the supply chain due to its 21 day shelf life. Beginning on April 26, 2018, an E. coli outbreak prompted the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to issue a warning not to consume any form of romaine (chopped, whole heads, hearts, salads and salad mixes) unless you can confirm that it is not from the Yuma, Arizona growing region. The CDC first announced the outbreak on April 10, but still has not identified a common brand, label, or supplier, and is still not recommending a recall at this time. Reports include 172 people infected with E. coli across 32 states (39 cases and 1 death reported in California). The illnesses started on dates ranging March 13-MAy 2. The CDC, along with the FDA and USDA, is continuing its investigation into the source of the outbreak.

We will remain vigilant of the ongoing investigation being conducted by the CDC and will update you as more information becomes available. If you have additional questions, please contact our Food Safety Manager, Joel Wilkerson, or visit the CDC website.

Del Rio Botanical, located on old River road between Sacramento and Woodland, is a privately owned 200-acre ranch producing open-pollinated organically grown seed and freshly packed specialty produce. All of Del Rio’s produce is harvested in the morning for same day delivery through Produce Express to over 50 restaurants in the region, including Mulvaney’s, Waterboy, Masullo, Grange and the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op. Their unique offerings include baby squashes with blossoms attached, Italian cucumbers, heirloom cherry tomatoes, lemon basil, Early Lady beans, calendula petals, chocolate mint, and 125 other specialty products grown on this organic farm. Del Rio offers farm tours and dining opportunities to help educate the community about the importance of organic farming. At every level of their operation, attention is paid to the sustainability of their farm. They use only multi-use boxes and permanent equipment. In addition, they provide year round employment for six agricultural workers.
