Bruce Taylor, chief executive officer at Taylor Farms, said Aug. 8 that the salad mix had been sent to thousands of restaurants via 14 distributors. He said the salad mix containing iceberg and romaine lettuce, red cabbage and carrots went to all of the states that reported cyclospora infections, as well as other states.
The FDA has consistently said Taylor Farms is cooperating with the investigation.
“This voluntary action goes beyond the implicated salad mix and includes iceberg lettuce, romaine lettuce, green leaf lettuce, red cabbage, green cabbage and carrots,” the FDA’s Aug. 12 update states. “The action of Taylor Farms de Mexico exemplifies the company’s cooperation with federal and state officials throughout this ongoing, complicated investigation.”
