12/13/2018 UPDATE FROM CDC
CDC is updating its warning to consumers. It advises that U.S. consumers not eat and retailers and restaurants not serve or sell any romaine lettuce harvested from certain counties in the Central Coastal growing regions of northern and central California. If you do not know where the romaine is from, do not eat it.
Boston Organics will only source Romaine lettuce from regions that are cleared by the CDC.
As a customer, you can always update your preference list and give a thumbs down to Romaine lettuce if you do not want to receive it in your order. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Any romaine lettuce Boston Organics sells will not be sourced from the growing regions listed by the CDC.
Although no Romaine lettuce was sent to any customers, except in the Olivia's Organics Salad mixes, we wanted to provide you with the following update....
Due to the multi-state E coli outbreak linked to Romaine lettuce, customers will not receive Olivia’s Organics salad mix on November 21st.
For customers that received either the Olivia’s 50/50 or Spring Mix this week (Nov 19th or Nov 20th), the FDA advises that you discard the salad mix. You will also be refunded/credited.
Starting next week, the Spring Mix will not contain any romaine lettuce.
The FDA and CDC are trying to isolate the source of the outbreak. Until then, they have not issued a recall of any products but have advised that any romaine lettuce, salad mixes or foods containing romaine be thrown out.
