September 29, 2008
Restaurants and institutions should not buy iceberg lettuce distributed by Aunt Mid’s Produce Co. after the produce was linked to more than 30 Illinois cases of E. coli, the Illinois Department of Public Health warned Sunday.
No Aunt Mid’s lettuce should be used until further notice.
Aunt Mid’s has voluntarily suspended the processing and sale of iceberg lettuce throughout the United States, according to the department.
