As announced earlier by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), True Leaf Farms is voluntarily recalling 90 cartons of chopped romaine lettuce due to possible Listeria contamination.

On that report, the recalled product was said to have been shipped between September 12 and 13, 2011 to a retail food service distributor in Oregon and distributed it further to at least two additional states, Washington and Idaho.

Nevertheless, FDA requested the company to expand the recall to 19 more US states and in Alberta, Canada to cover additional product shipped to wholesale food service distributors.

Among the US states now included in the recall are Alaska, Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Vermont.

The only outlet where the recalled product was available for direct user was at Unified Grocers, Inc. Cash & Carry Smart Food Service stores in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.

The recalled bags of romaine were packed in True Leaf Farms cardboard cartons and were distributed by Church Brothers, LLC, with the following label information: 2# bags, chopped romaine- Bag and box code B256-46438-8.

As of this writing, there are no illnesses recall-related reports but FDA strongly suggests that people who purchased the recalled product should not consume it, and should either destroy it or call the company for pickup.

For more information, the public is being advised to contact Church Brothers, LLC at 1-800-799-9475 or visit their official website at ChurchBrothers.com.
