Another day, another food recall

I knew it was just a matter of time. Another day, another food recall. Throw out all romaine lettuce you didn’t grow yourself.
The news is out: “On April 18, news of people getting sick after eating romaine lettuce contaminated with E. coli bacteria prompted an initial CDC advisory. The CDC had been searching for the cause of E. coli outbreaks since April 10. At first, the CDC issued a warning about all chopped romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona, region. The advisory included chopped romaine sold separately or mixed with other greens or vegetables. Most romaine lettuce sold in the U.S. is grown in the Yuma area.
By April 25, with at least 84 people from 19 states reporting being sickened by the contaminated lettuce, the CDC updated the advisory. Now, the CDC advises consumers to chuck all romaine, including whole heads and hearts of romaine. Unless you can be absolutely sure romaine lettuce you are about to eat isn’t from Yuma, Arizona, don’t take a chance.”
