Fresh Express Recalls Romaine Due to Manufacturing Error
Unlisted allergens are prompting a recall of bagged romaine lettuce from Fresh Express.
The company decided to recall the chopped romaine after it discovered condiment packets were mistakenly included. The packets of dressing, croutons, and parmesan cheese are used for the Fresh Express Caesar salad kits. These packets include milk, eggs, wheat and fish, and the bags of romaine lettuce do not include an allergy warning for these ingredients.
The bags are sold with a product code of G034A06A, a UPC of 7127926100, and use-by date of 02/19/2016.
Fresh Express representatives are coordinating with stores to remove the recalled product from retail stores. No other Fresh Express products are included in this recall.
The company distributed the product to locations in Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Virginia.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
Consumers in possession of the recalled product should discard it. A refund is available at the place of purchase or by contacting the Fresh Express Consumer Response Center.
