contaminated romaine lettuce with ecoli

Missa Bay, LLC. Of Swedesboro, NJ, recalled more than 97,000 pounds of salad bowls with meat or poultry because the lettuce may be contaminated with E.coli O157:H7. The recalled salad bowls have the establishment number “EST. 18502B” inside the USDA label of inspection.

The USDA posted the recall notice amidst the CDC’s investigation of a multi-state E.coli outbreak that is most likely tied to romaine lettuce. A total of 17 people have been sickened in the E.coli outbreak, including two Maryland residents who ate Ready Pac Bistro Bowl Chicken Caesar Salads. From a sick patient’s home, the Maryland Department of Health collected an unopened package of Ready Pac Chicken Caesar Salad with the establishment number “EST. 18502B” on the label – the product tested positive for E.coli O157:H7. All products made with this same lot of lettuce, including the lettuce used in Missa Bay salads, have been recalled.
