First spinach, now lettuce.
Foxy brand lettuce sold in seven Western states is being recalled because of concerns about E. coli contamination. The lettuce was grown in California's Salinas Valley, where tainted spinach was grown as well.
Executives ordered the recall after learning that irrigation water may have been contaminated with E. coli. So far, company investigators have not found E. coli bacteria in the lettuce itself.
The recall covers green leaf lettuce purchased in grocery stores October third through sixth in Arizona, California, Nevada, Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana.
The recall comes less than a week after the Food and Drug Administration lifted its warning on fresh spinach grown in the Salinas Valley.
Tainted spinach is blamed for three deaths nationwide.
