Giant Eagle Grocery Stores are recalling red and green leaf lettuce due to a possible E. coli contamination.

The affected lettuce is Adam Bros. Farming’s red and green leaf lettuce. The lettuce can be found in the grocery store’s produce section in the green cases.

The lettuce was sold between December 3rd through December 14th.

The product code for the red lettuce is: PLU 4075. The product code for the green lettuce is: PLU 4076.

Consumers should throw away the affected lettuce immediately or return to a store.

No illnesses have been reported at this time.

One in six Americans get food poisoning each year and surprisingly, almost half of all cases are caused by produce. 

Always be sure to wash your produce and check expiration dates prior to consuming. 

 Recovering compensation after an injury from a defective product

If you can prove that your food poisoning or food-related illness or injury was caused by a contaminated or misbranded food product, you may be able to pursue a product liability claim against the business that sold or prepared that food product. You should also contact your local health department to report the incident.

A claim against the negligent business or manufacturer for food poisoning or food- related illness or injury will seek recovery of medical bills, lost wages, out of pocket expenses and pain and suffering.

If you or someone you know has been injured or diagnosed with food poisoning due to a contaminated or misbranded food product, call Berger and Green at 412-661-1400 to schedule a free consultation with a personal injury lawyer in Pittsburgh today.
