Here is some information about where Produce Express procures its romaine from:

  • All romaine from Produce Express is from Field Fresh Farms located in Watsonville, CA
  • All of our chopped romaine is processed in Sacramento using Watsonville romaine only
  • All romaine salad mixes contain Romaine from Watsonville, CA

General Information: The latest release from the CDC has 25 additional illnesses reported since the last update on May 16th. People typically get sick from E. coli in 2-8 days after swallowing the germ. The average time it takes to get reported to the CDC is two to three weeks after becoming ill. The reported illness period has been adjusted to cover March 13th to May 12th. The CDC has named the Yuma, AZ region as the source of the outbreak, but has been unable to link a common grower, distributor or brand. The CDC still has NOT issued a recall at this time. As of May 2, the Arizona Department of Agriculture has confirmed that the Yuma growing region is no longer producing or distributing romaine. It is likely that there is no longer any affected romaine in the supply chain due to its 21-day shelf life.

Recap Summary: As of April 13, the CDC has reported a multi-state outbreak of E. coli related illnesses that have been associated with chopped romaine from the Yuma, AZ growing region. Here is the associated info:

  • 197 people infected with E. coli have been reported across 35 states
  • California is one of the states with reported illness (45 cases including 1 death)
  • The illnesses started on dates ranging from March 13th to May 12th
  • 25 new illnesses reported since May 16th
  • The CDC is not recommending a recall at this time
  • Yuma is no longer producing or distributing romaine per the Arizona Department of Agriculture
  • It is unlikely that any affected Yuma Romaine remains in the supply chain do it its 21 days shelf life

We will remain vigilant of the ongoing investigation being conducted by the CDC and will update you as more information becomes available. If you have additional questions, please contact our Food Safety Manager, Joel Wilkerson, or visit the CDC website.
