Product Advisory: Romaine Lettuce

Product Advisory: Romaine Lettuce

Updated: St. Louis, Wed., Nov. 21, 2018 - Dierbergs Markets has removed all romaine lettuce products from its shelves including: whole heads of romaine, nationally branded bagged salads and salad blends, Dierbergs-prepared salads-to-go, and chopped romaine sold from Dierbergs’ salad bars. These actions are in response to a Food Safety Alert issued Tuesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

This advisory comes as the CDC investigates a multi-state outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7 (E. coli O157:H7) infections that has been linked to romaine lettuce. No common grower, supplier, distributor, or brand of romaine lettuce has been identified yet.
