Tanimura & Antle Inc. of Salinas has issued a recall for 22,000 cartons of bulk or wrapped romaine marked with the lot code 531380. The lettuce was harvested between June 25 and July 2, and sold to retail, wholesale and food service outlets across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. The company is recalling the lettuce because it may be contaminated with salmonella.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections, especially in young children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems.
