Fresh Express Incorporated is announcing a precautionary recall of a limited quantity of 32-ounce Fresh Express Chopped Romaine with a Product Code of G034A06A and Use-By Date of February 19 due to a possible exposure to undeclared allergens. Fresh Express representatives are already coordinating with stores to remove the recalled product from retail stores where distributed, primarily in Eastern and Southeastern states.
The recall was necessitated when it was learned that sealed condiment packets containing individual packets of dressing, croutons, and parmesan cheese used in the brand’s Caesar salads were mistakenly placed in a limited quantity of the chopped romaine product. Ingredients in the individual packets include milk, eggs, wheat, and fish and even though the individual packets are enclosed in another sealed package, Fresh Express issued a recall out of an abundance of caution to protect consumers who may be at risk from exposure to undeclared allergens.
Fresh Express is coordinating with the FDA, has conducted an investigation into this isolated event, and is implementing corrective steps to prevent future occurrences.
