10:48 a.m. - Freshway Foods has issued a voluntary recall of products containing romaine lettuce with a use date of May 12 or earlier because officials say they have the potential to be contaminated with E.coli bacteria.


According to a statement issued by Freshway Foods, the recall includes romaine products at food service outlets, wholesale stores and in-store retail salad bars and delis.  No pre-packaged romaine or bagged salad mixes that are sold in supermarkets are included in the recall.

The possibly tainted lettuce was distributed to in-store salad bars and delis for Kroger, Giant Eagle, Ingles Markets, and Marsh stores in 23 states east of the Mississippi River including North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.

The Associated Press reports at least 19 people have reported illnesses caused by eating the lettuce and three of them with life-threatening symptoms.
