GIANT FOOD VOLUNTARILY REMOVES ALL ROMAINE LETTUCE PRODUCTS

Landover, Md. (November 21, 2018) -- Giant Food is aware of the CDC advisory that all romaine lettuce may be linked to some cases of E. coli illness nationally. While a recall has not been issued at this time, in an abundance of caution, Giant Food is voluntarily removing all products that might be impacted by this advisory from store shelves. Food safety is our highest priority. As we learn more from our suppliers, or receive additional guidance from regulatory agencies, we will take appropriate actions. We encourage consumers to follow CDC guidance. Customers should discard the product and contact a local store for a full refund.
