FROM THE FIELDS: Quality Alert Flyers in Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) Processed Items

March 12, 2018

Although temperatures are returning to seasonal norms this week, the unusual cold weather pattern at the end of February and first two weeks of March caused frost-related defects such as:

  • Dehydration
  • Epidermal Blistering
  • Epidermal Peeling
  • Yellowing Tips

Effective immediately, flyers will temporarily be placed in select Ready-Set-Serve cartons to communicate these quality struggles. 

The RSS products below will have flyers placed immediately:

  • RSS Washed & Trimmed Green Leaf and Green Leaf Fillets 2/5#
  • RSS Washed & Trimmed Romaine and Romaine Fillets 2/5#
  • RSS Chopped Romaine 6/2#
  • RSS Chopped Romaine/Spring Mix Blend 4/2#
  • RSS 50/50 Romaine/Iceberg Blend 4/5#

The items below may have flyers inserted depending on further inspections:

  • RSS Arugula
  • RSS Baby Kale
  • RSS Heritage Blend
  • RSS Baby Spinach and RSS Triple-Washed Spinach
  • RSS Spring Mix
