Romaine Lettuce Brand Recalled Due To Possible Parasite Contamination

31 March 2022

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A common brand of romaine lettuce is being recalled from Minnesota stores.

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) says Romaine Hearts by Ocean Mist Farms may contain Cyclospora, a parasite that can cause intestinal problems including diarrhea, stomach cramps and nausea.

The recall applies only to the 22 oz. package harvested on March 10 and includes the coding, “22RHDM2L.”

Many stores in Minnesota sell this brand of romaine lettuce, including Kowalski’s Markets and Festival Foods.

MDA issued the recall on March 31 saying they discovered the contamination during routine surveillance sampling. Customers who purchased the product should throw it away.

So far, no illness has been reported, according to the MDA.
