Lettuce Recall as E. Coli corrupts

This could turn you into this.


No we cannot change into giant lettuce heads, but after an E. Coli outbreak we should watch what we eat. 19 people or more are currently ill which has sparked the FDA to hunt the source of the E. Coli outbreak and recall the loved vegetable.

The outbreak started on college campuses and moved on.

The lettuce was sold in Alabama, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin. This comes at a time when certain people are pushing for more oversight and harsher food safety laws.

The FDA has narrowed its search to Arizona where they will find and arrest the E. Coli by killing the crop. It seems to me that an E. Coli outbreak happens at least once a year. I recall (get it?) last year when peanuts were the carrier of the insidious bacteria most commonly associated with feces.
