Lettuce Recall - Listeria

     SALINAS, Calif. (AP) - A California farm is voluntarily
recalling bags of chopped romaine lettuce because of possible
contamination with listeria, though no illnesses have been
reported.
     True Leaf Farms, of Salinas, announced Thursday that it's
recalling 90 cartons that were shipped to an Oregon food service
distributor. From the distributor, it might have gone to at least
two other states, Washington and Idaho.
     The Food and Drug Administration notified the company that a
sample taken as part of a random check tested positive for
listeria.
     The recall covers product with a "use by" of Sept. 29. The bag
and box code is B256-46438-8.
     Listeria rarely shows up in produce, but an outbreak linked to
cantaloupe from a Colorado farm has caused at least 72 illnesses,
including up to 16 deaths, in 18 states.
