Out of an abundance of caution, MAD Greens is now receiving all its romaine lettuce from Salinas, Calif., which has not been associated with the recent E. coli outbreak.
The CDC announced at 2pm on Friday, April 13th that an E. coli outbreak has been linked to chopped romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Ariz., region. After speaking with our suppliers, MAD Greens had no reason to believe that any of our romaine were affected. Nevertheless, the CDC advised restaurants not to serve or sell romaine, and MAD Greens followed that advice. All MAD Greens stopped serving romaine as of 2:45 MDT on Friday.
On Tuesday, April 17th, our locations in Arizona and Texas began receiving romaine lettuce from California and on Thursday, April 19th, Colorado locations did as well. All locations are currently serving romaine from California which has been deemed safe,
No reports of E. coli contamination are linked to any MAD Greens restaurant or its romaine supplier. We are monitoring this developing situation closely and will be diligent with our suppliers as more information becomes available.
