Nearly two dozen cases of bulk Romaine Lettuce sold at Vons and Pavilions stores in California and Nevada are being recalled due to potential Salmonella contamination, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Pacific International Marketing, also known as Pacific, issued a voluntary recall on July 6 recalling 19 cases of the lettuce sold in bulk produce bins from July 2 through July 4.

The lettuce heads are banded with a red twist tie marked “Safeway” and were distributed in bulk with the code 12EASROM182 on the RPC code.

The recall affects RPCs only, officials said, and no carton Romaine or bagged Romaine products are affected.
