Many of you have heard of the potential for a foodborne illness as a result of the consumption of romaine lettuce in the media in recent days.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has NOT issued any recall at this time and there have been no reported cases in Texas that are linked to romaine.

Currently, we have no indication that SBISD has received any romaine from affected growing areas.  However - out of an abundance of caution - we are removing romaine products from the menus.  We will continue to monitor the situation.

If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to contact me.
