In response to the FDA and CDC lifting the consumer advisory around romaine lettuce, MAD Greens will be serving romaine sourced from Yuma, Ariz. as soon as possible. In a November 26th conference call, the FDA said it would allow the sale of romaine lettuce harvested on or after November 23rd from areas outside the growing regions of Central and Northern California. We appreciate your continued patience and understanding as we work through a rigorous process to ensure safety and quality of all produce we serve. We will provide updates here and in our restaurants when possible.

Out of an abundance of caution, MAD Greens has removed romaine lettuce and romaine-related products from all of its restaurants.
The CDC announced at 12:30pm on Tuesday, November 20th that an E. coli outbreak has been linked to all romaine lettuce in the United States. After speaking with our suppliers, MAD Greens has no reason to believe that any of our romaine has been affected. Nevertheless, the CDC has advised restaurants not to serve or sell romaine, and MAD Greens is following that advice. All MAD Greens stopped serving romaine as of 1:20pm MDT on Tuesday.
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.
