A recall has been issued for Tanimura & Antle brand romaine lettuce because of possible E. coli contamination.
The lettuce was imported from the United States and sold across most of Canada from Aug. 8-17.
No reports of illness have been linked to the product, however, food contaminated with E. coli can cause serious and potentially life-threatening illnesses.
Symptoms include severe abdominal pain and bloody diarrhea.
Canadian distributors are voluntarily recalling the lettuce and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency is monitoring the recall.
