The Romaine Lettuce Scare Isn’t Over Yet

Can you verify your lettuce is NOT from California?

Romaine lettuce has been making a returned since being recalled for E. Coli, but the Center for Disease Control (CDC) advises that if you don’t know where it was grown, not to eat it.

Nine more people have become sick since eating the lettuce, bringing the total to 52 people across 15 states.

The CDC says don’t eat any romaine, unless you can confirm it wasn’t grown in California. But figuring out where your greens come from is no easy task.

Last week the CDC said it has narrowed the source of tainted romaine lettuce to produce grown in the Central Coastal area of California but has yet to be able to identify a grower, supplier, distributor, or brand of romaine lettuce that is infected. 

No deaths have been reported, but two people developed a type of kidney failure.
