Health Notice: Romaine Lettuce in School Lunches

Dear PSB Families, 

I am writing today to let you know that Public Schools of Brookline are aware of the potential e-coli contamination of “chopped romaine” lettuce that has been published by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) on November 20 and reported nationally in the news.

Our Food Service Management Company, Whitsons, has removed romaine lettuce from all of our schools and our suppliers will not deliver any more romaine lettuce until the CDC lifts the caution. Additionally, we are removing romaine lettuce from our menus until further notice.
