Furthermore, Adam Bros. requested that its customers notify the downline chain of custody to ensure a full recall. The farm said none of these products have tested positive for E. coli so far, and no illnesses have been reported.

Last week, the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that E. coli associated with the romaine lettuce outbreak had been detected in the sediment of a reservoir used to irrigate the farm.

The CFIA is recommending that the recalled products be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

The cauliflower was also sent to wholesalers in Arizona, California, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania, as well as Canada and Tijuana, Mexico.

Because the water may have come in contact with the vegetables, the farm decided on the larger recall.

Adam Bros Farming added that none of the filtered, treated water has yet tested positive for E. coli and that all E. coli tests are returning negative. Red and green leaf lettuce was distributed in California, Colorado, Oregon, Texas, Pennsylvania, Washington and Canada. They asked that the products not be eaten, sold or transferred.

Of the 59 people who were sickened across 15 states during the E. coli outbreak, 23 were hospitalized including two people who developed a type of kidney failure. Symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, mild to severe abdominal cramps and watery to bloody diarrhea.
