As we are sure you have heard, there has been a recent outbreak of E. coli in several states. The CDC and FDA have recommended to not consume romaine products grown in the Salinas growing region.
Produce Express has been sourcing romaine products from Yuma, Arizona since November 16th, 2019. All boxes are printed with the corporate address; however this is not an indicator of where the product was grown. Each box is stickered with a "grown in" label, in this case a pink sticker that says Yuma, AZ. Our romaine products are NOT part of the current recall or advisory.
Please contact your sales rep with any questions. You may also reach out to our food safety manager, Joel Wilkerson.
