Quality Advisory on West Coast Veg Due to Bad Weather

Posted on: November 14th, 2012 by francis produce

The Yuma and Imperial Valley growing areas in California and Arizona have experienced freezes and adverse growing conditions since Dec. 19. As a result, please be advised all iceberg, romaine, and leaf lettuces are showing epidermal peel and blisters. Shippers are now quoting all iceberg and leaf items with the defects, and will not accept claims associated with freeze defects. We will be working overtime to ensure we get the best available product to our customers. We will keep you posted as we make our way through this difficult situation. Thank you for your patience.
