California lettuce recalled over listeria fears: FDA

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - True Leaf Farms of Salinas, California, is recalling 90 cartons of chopped romaine lettuce because of potential contamination from listeria monocytogenes, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said on Friday.

The recalled romaine was shipped between September 12 and 13 to Church Brothers, a food service distributor in Oregon who distributed it to at least two other states, Washington and Idaho, according to a Thursday statement on the FDA website.

The romaine affected by the recall has a September 29 use-by date, the statement said.
