Spokane sandwich producer announces recall
In response to a green leaf lettuce recall, Spokane Produce, Inc., has also recalled sandwiches containing lettuce that may be contaminated with e. coli. The company, based in Spokane, Washington, has recalled products bearing Northwest Cuisine Creations and Fresh & Local labels. Those sandwiches contain green leaf lettuce produced by Adam Bros. Farming, Inc., in Santa Maria, California.
Recalled products include sandwiches bearing a best buy date between December 14, 2018, and December 21, 2018. These potentially contaminated sandwiches were distributed to retail groceries in Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and Oregon. Spokane Produce is also recalling Green Leaf Filets that were distributed to food service locations in five and ten pound containers.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), working with Adams Bros. Farming, Inc., has discovered that sediment near where produce was grown tested positive for e. coli. Subsequently, romaine lettuce, red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce, and cauliflower grown and distributed by Adams Bros. Farming has been recalled because of the potential for e. coli contamination in the produce.
- coli O157:H7 causes a diarrheal illness often with bloody stools. Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly. The condition can lead to serious kidney damage and even death.
