A California farm linked to the nationwide recall of romaine lettuce is now recalling cauliflower red leaf lettuce and green leaf lettuce amid fears of E. coli outbreak.


After a nationwide E. coli outbreak, more people are falling sick after eating romaine lettuce. The source of the feared outbreak is Adam Bros Farms in Santa Maria, California.

This plant was identified as at least one of the source of the contaminated romaine lettuce that led to an E. coli rampage last month.


No products have been tested positive for E. coli O157:H7, however, Adam Bros Farming said it is initiating the voluntary recall in cooperation with the FDA ‘out of an abundance caution’.

The farm released a statement which said;

‘Adam Bros Farming feels a strong commitment to its customers and has worked for years to provide a safe and healthy food supply.’

‘The recall was initiated after it was discovered that sediment from a reservoir near where the produce was grown tested positive for E. coli O157:H7.’

‘Filtered and treated water from the reservoir may have come in contact with the produce after it was harvested’, -the statement read.


The recall is mainly built around cauliflower, red leaf, and green leaf lettuce that were grown in particular fields and harvested between November 27 to November 30.

14 US states are included in this recall. According to Adam Bros. Farms, both red and green leaf lettuces were distributed to wholesalers in California, Colorado, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington and Canada. The former also went to Minnesota and Tijuana, Mexico.


Cauliflower was sent to Arizona, Ohio, North Carolina, New Jersey, Mexico, Illinois, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, Canada and California. However, they had the veggies taken off the shelf due to the outbreak.

As of Thursday, 59 people in 15 states and Washington D.C. had fallen ill; 23 hospitalized.

The FDA identified Adam Bros. on Thursday; a sample the investigators had collected from the sediment of an agricultural reservoir there tested positive for the same strain of E. coli, which caused the current outbreak. While investigators are still searching for other sources of the contaminated lettuce, the FDA has urged Americans to refrain from eating romaine lettuce in California’s Monterey, San Benito and Santa Barbara counties and even Santa Cruz and Ventura counties, if harvested after Nov. 23.


Worthy of note is the fact that not all of Adam Bros. Farming products are affected by the recall.

Just last month, Tons of ground beef were recalled due to E.coli outbreak too.
