FSIS lists this recall as a high health risk, meaning "there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences," according to the recall.

The recall comes after the Maryland Department of Health collected an unopened package of the product and the lettuce tested positive for E. coli. All products from the same lot of lettuce are included in the recall.
