Taylor Farms de Mexico, S. de R.L. de C.V. Suspends Production of Salad Mix and Leafy Greens

On August 12, 2013, Taylor Farms, officially informed FDA that, as of Friday, August 9, Taylor Farms de Mexico, S. de R.L. de C.V. voluntary suspended production of salad mix and leafy greens from our processing facility in Mexico. This decision allows Taylor Farms de Mexico to focus more resources on assisting the FDA in their investigation of the June Cyclospora outbreak. We continue to be very confident in our Mexico operation throughout our own review of our existing, and recently further enhanced, food safety procedures, systems and critical control points.

To maintain supply for our customers, Taylor Farms has shifted production of salad mix and leafy greens to domestic crops and processing facilities in California, Colorado, Texas, Tennessee, Florida, and Maryland. We expect the suspension of salad products to last several weeks. The production of broccoli products will continue in Mexico as broccoli is not subject to this investigation.

We will continue to update you as more information becomes available.
