More Illnesses Connected to Romaine Lettuce Grown in Salinas, California

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says an additional 27 people have become sickened after eating romaine lettuce contaminated with E. coli. This brings the total number to 67 people in 19 states infected with the disease. The illnesses started on dates ranging from September 24 to November 14. The FDA said last week to avoid romaine harvested from Salinas, California, and to throw any lettuce away if you’re unsure where it was grown.
