BRAMPTON, ON, Nov. 21, 2018 /CNW/ - Out of an abundance of caution, Loblaw Companies Limited is recalling and removing from store shelves across the country all romaine lettuce products, as they may pose a risk to the health and safety of customers.
The Public Health Agency of Canada recently advised individuals in Ontario and Quebec to avoid eating romaine lettuce and salad mixes containing romaine lettuce until more is known about the outbreak and the cause of contamination.
Concerned customers can return products to any store for a full refund.
Loblaw will continue to work with Canadian and US regulators as more information about the source of the outbreak becomes available.
More information for customers is available at Canada.ca/publichealth
