Another Romaine Lettuce Recall

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announced another recall for romaine lettuce due to a Cyclospora parasite found during sampling. According to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, consumers should avoid with the coding “22RHDM2L” and a March 10 harvest date.  The romaine in question was grown in Coachella, California. The lettuce was sold mainly in Duluth, the Twin Cities, and surrounding suburbs. According to officials, Cyclospora is becoming more common and there is no evidence that washing removes it. Currently, no illnesses have been linked to the recalled romaine hearts.
