Kalera PLC has issued a Salmonella lettuce recall that includes retail and foodservice locations in Florida. The recall includes whole heads of “Krunch,” butter, and romaine lettuces with lot codes 001293 and 001294.
Kalera, which grows lettuce vertically indoors, discovered the problem during routine testing and alerted the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The recalled greens were grown at the Orlando location. At the time of the recall, the company was not aware of any illnesses associated with the product.
Symptoms of a Salmonella infection usually develop within six to 72 hours of exposure. They include fever, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea that may be bloody. Some infections, which enter the bloodstream, can result in severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis, and arthritis.
