Florida lettuce recalled due to possible salmonella contamination

Kalera Public Limited recalls more than 600 cases of lettuce over concerns that the product may be contaminated with salmonella.

According to the US Food and Drug Administration, 633 whole Krunch, Butter, and Romaine lettuce cases were included in the voluntary recall. The affected batch codes include 001293 and 001294 and can be found on the label.

Health officials say the affected products have been distributed to a few retail and food service customers in Florida, who have been notified of the health concerns. Calera said there were no reports of illnesses.

Salmonella infections usually cause diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps that begin any time between six hours and six days after the bacteria are ingested. Affected people younger than five or older than 64, and those with compromised immune systems, may become severely ill and require hospitalization.

The FDA said that no other Calera products are affected by the recall.

Customers or retailers with recalled products are urged to dispose of items or call the company for a refund at (407) 574-8204 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Eastern time, Monday through Friday.
