Stop eating romaine lettuce: major health recall

https://www.nbcnews.com/health/healt...dvises-n834581

They haven't identified the source, so they recommend tossing out any romaine, including bagged salad blends, until they can verify the source and cause.

Thanks for this, Dottie. I read it right after I finished a big salad of romaine lettuce. Romaine happens to be my favorite, unfortunately. Will switch to something else for a while.

I bought 2 bags of a salad blend containing romaine. I ate one with no problem, but threw the second one away because the recall scared me. I don't need to get very sick over a $3 bag of salad.

They haven't had any new cases reported in 10 days, but I'm going to give it another 2 weeks to make sure there are no more.

Carol I agree: not worth getting sick over.
Here's an updated article:

I'm really surprised that it's still in full supply at my local Publix----- usually they rush to get it off the shelves in a heartbeat!

I heard on the national news last night there are new cases, and they're saying to continue to avoid it, though no recalls have been declared.
