Romaine Lettuce Should Be Avoided Again

35 sick from E. Coli outbreak traced to romaine lettuce

State and local health department officials are investigating multiple reports of E. coli infections likely linked to chopped romaine lettuce.

The CDC and the FDA are advising people that before they eat lettuce from a restaurant to confirm that the product used to prepare the meal is not chopped romaine lettuce from the Yuma growing region.

Romaine lettuce, it's great for Cesar salad, it's also a nice addition to tacos and sandwiches, but during your next trip to the grocery store you may want to cross that item off your list.

Dr. Wells says there is an E.coli outbreak in eleven states and chopped romaine lettuce is the cause.

CDC also said the number of cases may increase "due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill with E. coli and when the illness is reported".

The CDC on Friday advised consumers anywhere in the United States not to eat and throw away any store-bought chopped romaine lettuce at home, including salads and salad mixes containing chopped romaine lettuce.
