Romaine Lettuce E.Coli Outbreak Causes First Fatality
As if you needed one more excuse to get out of eating your greens, here's a good one. News 10 abc has reported that the Romaine lettuce E. Coli outbreak has caused it's first official fatality. According to News 10 abc, the death was reported in California, noted by Federal Health officials, but no other details were given. Even more scary is that the outbreak is now reported in over 25 states with 52 hospitalizations, 14 of which were for kidney failure. While News 10 abc reports the outbreak has been tied to Romaine lettuce grown in Arizona, I particularly am avoiding Romaine lettuce as a whole. That includes pre-made salads which I love, however now read every single label of. Lets hope this outbreak slows down soon and doesn't continue to spread.
