I wanted to provide an update on the lettuce recall. Originally, it was said to avoid bagged, chopped lettuce due to possible e-coli. There have been many illnesses linked to romaine lettuce.
The FDA is now saying to “avoid all forms of romaine lettuce, whether chopped, whole head or hearts, that originated from the Yuma growing region. If you cannot confirm the source of the romaine lettuce, do not buy it or eat it. If you have already purchased romaine lettuce or products containing romaine lettuce and cannot confirm the source, throw them away.”
This includes both organic romaine and non organic romaine. Toss any romaine you have and opt for spinach based salad mixes right now until they can get further information on the brands included in the recall.

Thank you for the post – I’ve already checked with Earthbound Farm, and their stuff appears to be safe – also, the Stop & Shop in my area is posting notices that they are not sourcing from Iowa, so their stuff appears to be safe as well.
Also, I’ve been eating romaine lettuce all along and have not experienced any health issues whatsoever 🙂
Good to hear. Thanks for sharing!
