SALINAS, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California produce supplier is voluntarily recalling romaine lettuce that was shipped to 19 states, Puerto Rico and Canada over fears of possible E. coli contamination.

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 company says some 2,095 cases are potentially affected.
The product was packed with either 12 or 18 heads per case.
There have been no reported illnesses associated with consumption of this product.
