It's time to toss that salad out again. Ready Pac Foods, which is based in Irwindale, is voluntarily recalling 5,379 cases of bagged salad that have romaine lettuce in them.This time the culprit isn't listeria but good old-fashioned E. coli. There haven't been any illnesses reported just yet, but one of the bags of romaine tested positive for E.coli O157:H7.

Just to be safe, the company is asking that if you have any salad with romaine lettuce that has a Use-by Date of November 18, you should toss it out. This voluntary recall affects products at Trader Joe's and Safeway.

Here's a list of the affected products:

If you bought the product record the Use-by Date and UPC number, throw out the salad and call Ready Pac Consumer Affairs representative at (800) 800-7822 for a refund. For more information, visit the FDA website.
