  • Adam Bros. Farming cauliflower, lettuce recalled due to possible E.Coli contamination

The investigation into the E. coli outbreak that has sickened dozens and forbidden our sweet, sweet cos lettuce is still underway, but officials with federal agencies investigating the outbreak said this week that they've identified at least one farm in California to which the infecting strain O157:H7 may be tied.

Health Canada is recalling certain cauliflower, red leaf lettuce and green leaf lettuce produced by Adam Bros.

The farm issued a news release on December 13, saying it was recalling the cauliflower "out of an abundance of caution" and that there had been no reports of illness and so far none of the newly recalled products have been contaminated. It's the same supplier linked to the recent outbreak that affected romaine lettuce.

After it was harvested, the produce "may have come in contact with" filtered and treated water from that reservoir, Adam Bros.

Investigators found traces of E. coli in sediment from a reservoir near the farm's fields, according to the release.

This bacteria may cause a diarrheal illness from which most healthy adults can recover completely within a week.

Giant Eagle is voluntarily recalling red and green leaf lettuce sold in western Pennsylvania from December 3 - 14. More severe infections can lead to kidney failure and even death. Farming Inc. of Santa Maria California have been recalled. It does not include all of Adam Bros. It was also distributed in Tijuana, Mexico and Canada.

The FDA asked producers and distributors of romaine lettuce to begin labeling their products with the harvest location and harvest date.
