Giant Eagle Lettuce Recalled for Potential Listeria Contamination


Another day, another recall it seems. After the news that the listeria-tainted cantaloupe outbreak is the deadliest in more than 25 years, now there's another food recall due to possible listeria contamination. Pittsburgh's Giant Eagle Inc. is recalling its eight-ounce packages of shredded iceberg lettuce, according to Reuters.

Here's what you need to know to stay safe: The lettuce was produced by River Ranch Fresh Foods and has the use-by date of October 14. So far, there have been no reported cases of sickness, but the recalled lettuce was used in a small number of prepared deli ring sandwiches, all of which have the Giant Eagle brand.
Just more reason to trade that iceberg lettuce in your salads and sandwiches for more nutritious spinach!
