Fri Apr 20, 2018 8:09PM
Giant Eagle, Inc. is recalling multiple items prepared with romaine lettuce and sold in its Giant Eagle, Market District and GetGo locations across western Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland and Indiana. This recall is in response to a CDC notice on romaine lettuce sourced by a supply partner from the Yuma, Arizona growing region.
Escherichia coli O157:b is a bacterium that causes a diarrheal illness often with bloody stools. Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly. The condition can lead to serious kidney damage and even death.
Giant Eagle is conducting this voluntary recall out of an abundance of caution. There are no reported illnesses among Giant Eagle customers to date associated with this recall.
The ready to eat products were packaged from April 9th to April 13th and were sold in clear plastic containers. They include various items prepared with romaine lettuce and sold in our catering, restaurant and salad bar areas. The following products are also subject to recall, and include those items referenced in an associated USDA recall announcement regarding Giant Eagle's Fresh Foods Manufacturing production facility located in Freedom, Pennsylvania:
