"ORLANDO, Fla., November 3, 2022 (FOR DISTRIBUTION) – Kalera Public Limited Company (“Kalera” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: KAL), is voluntarily recalling 633 cases of Krunch, Butter and Romaine whole head variety lettuce with lot codes 001293 and 001294 on the label and sold under the Kalera brand because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

Distribution was limited to a small number of retail and foodservice customers in Florida. The Company has notified these customers and is working with them to ensure consumers do not receive any of the products affected by the recall."

Ah yes, our annual romaine salmonella recall.  Or is it usually E. coli?

l have been buying the whole head lettuce because it was the only kind that didn't have recalls !  l love romaine , and like the bags of cut up mixed lettuce , but haven't bought any in several years because of the almost weekly recalls . So sad now the iceberg heads are in the same boat !

@judianne @The ironic thing about their lettuce is that it is grown indoors and the packaging says "The cleanest lettuce in the world."
