    A California produce supplier is voluntarily recalling romaine lettuce that was shipped to 19 states, Puerto Rico and Canada over fears about possible E. coli contamination.

    Texas is one of those states.

    The FDA and Tanimura & Antle are recalling a single lot of romaine lettuce because of possible E. Coli contamination.

    A total of 2,095 cases of potentially affected lettuce were distributed.

    Salinas-based Tanimura & Antle says the recall is limited to a single lot of its Field Fresh Wrapped Single Head Romaine that was available at retail stores starting Aug. 2. The lettuce is packed in a plastic bag with the UPC number 0-27918-20314-9, and it may have a "best by" date of Aug. 19.

    The product was packed with either 12 or 18 heads per case. The lettuce can be identified by the trace code on the outside of the case 5417802151.

    The recall is based on the testing of a random sample by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

    There have been no reported illnesses associated with eating the product.
