You Should Definitely Not Eat Lettuce Right Now

WARNING: SALAD IS BAD FOR YOU.

At least right now it is.

Officials with Consumer Reports and the CDC are warning Americans to stay away from Romaine lettuce right now, as an E. Coli outbreak has made 58 people in the U.S. and Canada sick.

E. Coli is a bacteria that lives in the stomach of livestock and can commonly affect raw fruits and vegetables that come into contact with contaminated soil or animal manure.  While most symptoms include minor ailments like an upset stomach, diarrhea, and vomiting, a more serious effect can be kidney failure and death.

So, the moral of the story.  Your salad can kill you.
