Following the investigation in the US into E.coli contamination of romaine lettuce, certain cauliflower, red leaf lettuce, and green leaf lettuce are being recalled which were produced by Adam Bros Farming Inc. This recall is harder to manage than the blanket warning about romaine lettuce, however, as it is only certain batches of the products that are being recalled and they can be tricky to identify.
