iStockphotoThinkstock(WASHINGTON) — A California supplier is voluntarily recalling its romaine lettuce over concerns the product may be contaminated with E. coli, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The FDA said Sunday that the affected product was limited to a single lot of Tanimura & Antle Field Fresh Wrapped Single Head Romaine and may have a “best buy” date of Aug. 19, 2012.

More than 2,000 cases of potentially contaminated product were distributed across the United States and Canada since Aug. 2.  The company said that 1,969 cases were shipped to 19 states and Puerto Rico.
