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.
