Georgia is one of 23 states in which romaine lettuce has been recalled due to its possible link in an E. Coli outbreak that has sickened at least 19 people. So far, all those who have become ill are in Ohio, New York and Michigan. An additional 10 people have in those states have probably been sickened.
The possibly tainted lettuce was packaged by Freshway Foods of Sidney, Ohio, and sold under the Freshway and Imperial Sysco brands.
The romaine under investigation is pre-shredded. Neither whole-head romaine nor any romaine from other producers are under investigation.
