Romain lettuce linked to strain of E. Coli

(WJBF) - With Thanksgiving shopping well under way the Centers for Disease Control issues an urgent food safety alert.

The culprit?  Romaine lettuce.

The leafy green lettuce, popular in many salad mixes and restaurants has been linked to particularly nasty strain of E. Coli.

The CDC gives the following recommendations:

If you have any type of Romaine in your house- throw it away, even if some of it has been used.

This includes bags and boxes of precut lettuce and salad mixes.

Restaurants and stores should not serve or sell any romaine lettuce—including pre-mixes

If you become ill—write down anything you’ve eaten for a week and report to your doctor.
