    I know it is early, but I would love to know the source of these Romaine lettuce heads. Do other Tanimura and Antle lettuces come from the same fields?

  • Ben

    Usually it takes weeks or months or never until FDA find the source of the contamination. The lot codes don’t tell anything as we see with every recall. The industry is lacking a all-up and all down traceability system.

    I wonder if they ever do a swab on those plastic crates at Walmart . Those things are disgusting looking.

  • Crystal

    We don’t need traceability. Just one up, one down on a handshake…no written receipts. Oh, and hang a sign. That’s all the food safety anyone really needs. Don’t be so squeamish over a little diarrhea among friends and trusted vendors.
