BrightFarms recalls packaged salads over fears of E.coli

BrightFarms is voluntarily recalling packaged produce sold in Roundy’s Supermarkets due to the potential presence of E. coli at its greenhouse farm in Rochelle, IL, in Ogle County.

The affected BrightFarms branded products are sold at Mariano’s Markets in Illinois and Metro Market and Pick ‘n Save stores in Wisconsin.

The recall includes the below salad products packaged in clear, plastic clamshells with best by dates located on the label of the package: 10/24/2017, 10/25/2017, 10/26/2017, 10/27/2017 and 10/28/2017.
Basil products, packaged in clear plastic clamshells with best by dates located on the label of the package: 10/20/2017, 10/21/2017, 10/22/2017, 10/23/2017 and 10/24/2017.
BrightFarms chose to take this action out of an abundance of caution after receiving routine lab results and discovering that certain product may have been compromised. Affected retailers have been instructed to remove all affected products from store shelves.

The recall is limited to products grown at the company’s Rochelle, IL, farm. BrightFarms products from greenhouses in other regions are not affected.
