It’s happening again: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is warning Americans to avoid romaine lettuce.
In a fresh statement posted online today (Nov. 20), the agency announced that officials are “investigating a multistate outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7 linked to romaine lettuce.” In other words, E. coli-tainted lettuce is here again.
The CDC noted that no illnesses have been reported in the outbreak so far. Still, consumers are being advised to “not eat any romaine lettuce, and retailers and restaurants [should] not sell or serve any” until the CDC learns more about the outbreak.
