FDA narrows previous warning on romaine lettuce, says some is safe to eat

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Monday narrowed its warning against eating romaine, saying that it is safe to eat some of the lettuce depending on where it was harvested.

The FDA said that the romaine lettuce linked to an E. coli outbreak, which triggered last week's call to destroy any of the vegetable currently found in homes, stores and restaurants, appears to come from the Central Coast regions in central and northern California.

People are now safe to consume romaine lettuce from other regions, such as California's Imperial Valley, Arizona, Florida and Mexico, the FDA said.

To make clear which romaine is safe to eat, the FDA is also recommending that growers, processors, distributors and retailers label romaine packaging with its growing region and harvest date. For romaine that doesn't come in such packaging, retailers are being asked to have labels by their checkout registers.

2. I'll listen to the CDC. I don't trust the FDA

to have our best interests at heart.

3. That's nice

I suspect that the Romaine lettuce 🥬 growers are at this point pretty much screwed by the recall. I know I won’t be buying or eating any for a very long time if ever again.

4. Same. My husband and I have been off lettuce all year except for r/o

some locally raised hydroponic baby greens. They use filtered water and guarantee the safety of their lettuce.
