The Nunes Company, Inc. / Foxy Vegetables has not been contacted by any agency related to this outbreak. At this point in time, no grower, supplier, distributor, or brand / label has been identified by any government agency. In reference to the current reported E. coli outbreak, we suggest that you follow the advice of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding all forms of romaine lettuce.

Due to the fact we cannot know inventories at each store, please contact the store where you purchased your romaine, with date of purchase, to find out where your specific product was grown.

Advice to Consumers: Do not buy or eat romaine lettuce at a grocery store or restaurant unless you can confirm it is NOT from the Yuma, Arizona, growing region. Unless the source of the product is known, consumers anywhere in the United States who have any store-bought romaine lettuce at home should not eat it and should throw it away, even if some of it was eaten and no one has gotten sick. Product labels often do not identify growing regions; so, throw out any romaine lettuce if you’re uncertain about where it was grown. This includes whole heads and hearts of romaine, chopped romaine, and salads and salad mixes containing romaine lettuce. If you do not know if the lettuce is romaine, do not eat it and throw it away.

As a grower of fresh, high quality produce, The Nunes Company, Inc. takes food safety very seriously, and adheres to the most rigorous food safety practices to provide consumers with the safest produce possible.
