Adam Bros. Farming in Santa Maria is recalling its red and green leaf lettuce and cauliflower over concerns the vegetables could be contaminated with E. coli.

The recall comes after the farm was identified as at least one source of an E. coli outbreak in romaine lettuce that sickened 59 people.

U.S. health officials said a water reservoir at the farm tested positive for the bacterial strain.

The Adam Bros. recall affects vegetables harvested from November 27 through November 30. The company says none of the recalled products have tested positive for E. coli and no illnesses have been reported.

Food regulators said Thursday that other farms are likely involved in the romaine lettuce E. coli outbreak. They previously narrowed the source to Santa Barbara, Monterey and San Benito counties. The Food and Drug Administration said lettuce from other areas harvested after November 23 should be safe to eat.
