Farming, Inc. said it had notified customers affected by the recall.

The affected products include cauliflower with the Adam Brothers Family Farms logo, as well as green and red leaf lettuces that were sold in bulk without packaging. So far, the CFIA says there have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products.

Farming, Inc. issued a voluntary recall for red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce and cauliflower after E. coli was found in a reservoir near where it was grown.

The company said the recall is of an abundance of caution, as the water from the reservoir is treated before coming into contact with harvested produce.

Apple will update China iPhones to prevent ban, but Qualcomm still fighting
We can only assume that next week we will learn whether the Chinese courts will grant Apple some leniency in this case. Since all of the models named in the ban can run iOS 12 , Apple argues they aren't infringing on Qualcomm's patents.

Adam Bros Farming said the recall does not involve all of its products and that no illnesses have yet been reported. The cauliflower was distributed in 10 states: Arizona, California, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Red and green leaf lettuce was distributed to wholesalers in CA, CO, OR, TX, PA, WA and Canada; red leaf lettuce only was distributed to a wholesaler in MN and Tijuana, Mexico.

So far, almost 60 illnesses from contaminated romaine lettuce have been reported in 15 states, with 23 people being hospitalized. If those products are ingested, contamination could lead to symptoms of nausea, vomiting and in more extreme cases, seizures, strokes, permanent kidney damage or even, death.

The CFIA is warning consumers, restaurants and institutions not to purchase, sell or consume these products.
