We understand that there is confusion regarding the current situation about the government’s investigation of Romaine lettuce grown in Yuma, AZ.
It’s important that you know that Fresh Express Romaine lettuce products have not been implicated and Fresh Express has not issued a recall of any Romaine products. Additionally, Fresh Express has not been contacted by any regulatory agency in connection with this investigation.
Because our highest priority is the wellbeing of our consumers, Fresh Express follows rigid food safety practices at every phase of salad production, starting in the field and continuing all the way through to delivery to your local grocer. Food safety audits begin before the first seed is even planted, and continue throughout growing, pre-harvest and harvest, including a range of critical food safety checks as well as pre-harvest testing for E. coli O157:H7.
Fresh Express does not currently source any Romaine lettuce from Yuma.
We stand behind our rigorous food safety program and the quality and safety of our fresh salad and leafy greens products, including Romaine.
