Foxy lettuce recall adds to fear of bagged greens

Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon and Washington consumers were impacted by the recent recall of Foxy brand lettuce after the discovery of E. coli in irrigation water.

As of October 10, the company had recovered nearly all of the recalled lettuce, but a small portion of the product was thought to be consumed or in customers’ refrigerators.

In an article for the New York Times, Jesse McKinley says, "contaminated lettuce has long been a source of concern for health authorities. In August, the F.D.A. announced the Lettuce Safety Initiative, meant to address E. coli outbreaks in the past decade that had been linked to fields in the Salinas Valley, about 100 miles south of San Francisco."

E. coli O157:H7 was not isolated from Foxy brand lettuce fields.
