UPDATE DEC 17, 2018 – This problem not going away any time soon, in fact, now the California farm that was tied to an outbreak of E.coli on romaine lettuce is recalling cauliflower and other lettuce grown at the farm. On Thursday, Adam Bros. Farming Inc. sent out a news release indicating red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce and cauliflower harvested November 27-30 has been recalled because it may also be contaminated with E.coli. The farm initiated the voluntary recall with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration after the cauliflower was distributed in 10 states including Arizona. The additional lettuce recalled was sent to states mostly on the western side of the country that did not include Arizona. The farm says it recently tested sediment in a reservoir near where the produce is grown tested positive for E.coli and may have come into contact with the produce.

UPDATE DECEMBER 4, 2018 – The romaine lettuce recall that came in before Thanksgiving, at the time it was reported by the CDC and FDA, everyone in the country was advised to steer clear of it due to the possibility of E. Coli contamination. now the Centers for Disease Control and Food and Drug Administration have narrowed down the potentially toxic  romaine lettuce to sources from Central and Northern California. health officials in several states, as well as Canada, continue to investigate the outbreak of Shiga toxin producing E. Coli illnesses linked to the romaine lettuce and they still warn that if you don’t know where it comes from, it’s better to rule on the side of safety and not eat it. The CDC is working on a method to label romaine lettuce by region so keep an eye out for those labels in the grocery store in days to come.


NOVEMBER 20, 2018 – The CDC has issued a warning that romaine lettuce is UNSAFE to eat and to THROW IT AWAY regardless of what state you live in. Do not order it in restaurants, do not buy it from grocery stores or consume romaine you might still have in your fridge regardless of when or where it was purchased unless you grew it in your own garden. A nationwide e-coli outbreak has the Center for Disease Control warning consumers that all romaine lettuce should be thrown out. So far more than 30 people in 11 states have suffered illness as a result of eating romaine lettuce. Canadian consumers are also receiving the same warning due to the e-coli strain. Again do NOT eat romaine lettuce and that includes pre-washed salad mix that contains romaine or baby romaine. Read the full CDC report here.
