California Lettuce Recalled Over E. Coli Fears

FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

A Salinas company is voluntarily recalling packages of romaine lettuce for fears they could be contaminated with the E. coli bacteria.

Tanimura and Antle announced the nationwide recall Sunday.

The company says it's limited to a single lot of its Field Fresh Wrapped Single Head Romaine that was sold at stores beginning August 2nd through Sunday August 19th.

The lettuce is packed in a plastic bag and has the "best by" date of August 19.

The company says some 2,000 cases could be contaminated with E. coli.

The lettuce is sold across California, at stores like Save Mart, Whole Foods and Costco.

So far, no one has reported getting sick from eating the lettuce.
