We Can Go Back To Eating Romaine Lettuce

 We can finally go back to eating romaine lettuce, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention saying yesterday (May 17th) that the last of any potentially dangerous romaine that could be linked to the E. coli outbreak should now be off the shelves. The CDC had been warning people to steer clear of all romaine unless they knew it wasn’t grown in the Yuma, Arizona, region, which was linked to the outbreak. But the health agency said yesterday that the last shipments of the infected romaine were harvested about a month ago, and since the season is over, it’s unlikely that any romaine from the Yuma region is still available in stores or restaurants. More than 170 people in 32 states were sickened by E. coli after eating romaine since the outbreak began.
