Our Romaine is Not Affected by the E. coli Outbreak

E. coli linked to romaine lettuce has sickened more than 50 people in 16 states. The romaine includes whole heads and hearts, chopped romaine, and salads and salad mixes containing romaine.

The tainted romaine was grown in the Yuma, Ariz., growing region. Grocery stores and restaurants nationwide may carry it. Consumers should not eat any romaine without first confirming where the lettuce was grown.

This time of year, all Co-op romaine lettuce is sourced from farms in California. Upper Valley-grown lettuce will be starting soon. Co-op merchandisers have confirmed with our distributors that no Co-op romaine is grown in the affected growing region.
