November 14, 2022 — Kalera has recalled 633 cases of Kalera® fresh lettuce because it may be contaminated with Salmonella.
The recall involves Krunch, Butter and Romaine whole-head variety fresh lettuce with lot codes 001293 and 001294.
The lettuce was only sold in Florida at retailers like Publix, a small number of other retailers, and foodservice customers.
Publix also listed Kalera Arugula and Hydro Green Frisee on its recall notice, with the same lot codes.
No illnesses were reported, but Kalera said “tests indicated the potential presence of Salmonella in some of its whole head lettuce,” according to the FDA recall notice posted on November 3.
Salmonella symptoms may include fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain. In rare cases, Salmonella can cause complications like arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis, arthritis, according to the FDA.
