E. coli O157:H7 Infections Linked to Romaine Lettuce

The safety of our students is our utmost importance, therefore the Food Services Department wants to reassure parents that lettuce being served in our school lunch program is safe. Due to the recent multi-state E.coli outbreak, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended avoiding any romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona growing region.  We have verified with our suppliers that all lettuce being served in our cafeterias comes from California and does not come from the growing area that the CDC is concerned about. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will update you on any changes as it pertains to the school lunch program.
