California farm linked to E. coli outbreak recalls cauliflower, lettuce

The recalled cauliflower is labeled Adam Bros.

The company said none of the recalled products have tested positive for E. coli, but the company was issuing the voluntary recall in cooperation with the FDA out of an abundance of caution.

Adam Bros. Farming is asking anyone who believes they have any of the recalled products to throw them out right away and notify the "downline chain of custody to insure a full recall". Farming Inc. of Santa Maria California have been recalled.

A California farm that was tied to an outbreak of E.coli on romaine lettuce is now recalling cauliflower and other lettuce grown at the farm.

The company said that there have been no illnesses reported in the recall of red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce and cauliflower.

Officials believe filtered and treated water from the reservoir may have come in contact with the produce after it was harvested, but said none of the water has tested positive for E. coli.

Adam Bros Farming said the recall does not involve all of its products and that no illnesses have yet been reported. Farms in Santa Barbara County tested positive for the bacterial strain and the owners are cooperating with US officials.

Recalled red and green leaf lettuce was sent to wholesalers in California, Colorado, Minnesota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington state.

Farms in Santa Barbara County said Thursday it was issuing the new recall, for the listed products harvested between November 27 and November 30, "out of an abundance of caution".

Is it safe to eat romaine lettuce again? More severe infections can lead to kidney failure and even death.

As of Thursday, 59 people in 15 states were sickened in the outbreak.
