The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lifted its advisory for romaine grown outside of the Central Coast growing region (northern and central California). This is the primary region March through November.
Seashore will begin shipping romaine tomorrow. We will only be shipping romaine from Yuma, Arizona and Mexico.
Please be advised that the grower-shippers we purchase from are in the process of executing new labeling standards that stipulate where the product is grown.
The product that we are going to be shipping out will NOT be from California. The label may say, "produce of USA - shipping from CA/AZ" however, it is from Yuma, AZ or Mexico. This indicates that the product was pack prior to CDC's updated advisory.
We purchase direct from national growers and you can be assured that the product we ship to you is the safest possible product.
