Tanimura & Antle Romaine Lettuce Recalled for Possible Salmonella

Romaine A California firm, Tanimura & Antle, is recalling some of its romaine lettuce.  The recall has been expanded to include all 50 states.  From the company's website:

As a precautionary measure, Tanimura & Antle has issued a voluntary recall of romaine lettuce due to a finding of Salmonella in a routine box check. No illnesses have been reported or attributed to the consumption of the lettuce. We are fully and voluntarily working with state and federal authorities to ensure that the recall and the investigation surrounding the finding are carried out in a timely and efficient manner.

ONLY SINGLE WHOLE HEAD ROMAINE LETTUCE SUPPLIED BY TANIMURA & ANTLE is included in this recall. NOT Tanimura & Antle Romaine Hearts or other Tanimura & Antle products. Photos of recalled product.

We deeply regret any inconvenience that this recall may pose to our customers, but the safety of our produce is our most important priority, and we want to do everything we can to ensure that we effectively minimize any possible risk.
