The CDC is Telling People NOT to Eat Romaine Lettuce

posted by Jonathan - 

If you have Romaine lettuce in your refrigerator, either fresh or as part of a salad mix, the Center for Disease Control is urging you to get rid of it IMMEDIATELY (and not by eating it).

A massive E. coli outbreak has been linked to romaine lettuce grown in the Yuma, Arizona region. 18 new cases have been discovered across 16 states over the last week, and although no deaths have been reported, the CDC is urging customers to not take that risk.

So far, Tennessee is NOT one of the states that an E. Coli case has been admitted, but that doesn't mean that we're safe.  

Cases have have been discovered as close as Virginia and Missouri, and with the possibility of popular salad mixes from brands like Dole being contaminated, it's best to just not risk it.

Stay safe friends, and remember - NO LETTUCE! So, just eat cookies and meat instead.
