California farm recalls chopped romaine lettuce

September 29, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
A Central California farm is voluntarily recalling bags of chopped romaine lettuce because of possible listeria contamination.

At least 90 cartons of suspect lettuce were shipped to an Oregon food distributor. None of the lettuce is believed to have come to Southern California.

The Food and Drug Administration notified the company that a sample taken as part of a random check tested positive for listeria.

The lettuce is labeled True Leaf Farms, and the bags have a "use by" date of Sept. 29. The bag and box code is B256-46438-8.

No illnesses have been reported.

The lettuce recall comes on the heels of a listeria outbreak linked to cantaloupe from Colorado that has caused at least 72 illnesses and 16 deaths across 18 states.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
