Romaine Lettuce

Postby Nick Blade (187030201) » Thu Nov 22, 2018 12:34 pm

“Step away from the salad, advises the CDC. Specifically, you should stay away from romaine lettuce in every possible form: baby romaine, spring mix, whole heads, precut, the works. An outbreak of pathogenic E. coli across 11 states and Canada has been traced to romaine lettuce, an echo of a similar outbreak that happened at the same time last year.”

“The warning extends to lettuce in restaurants, shops, and your home, and the CDC recommends taking no risks: if you think you bought the lettuce before the current outbreak, trash it anyway. If you’re not sure it’s romaine, trash it anyway. If you had romaine in your fridge, they recommend washing down the entire fridge with warm, soapy water; and, if you're inclined to be extra cautious, a bit of diluted liquid bleach to follow.”

“Why the high level of alarm? The outbreak is caused by a particularly nasty strain of E. coli that can, in some cases, lead to a type of kidney failure; it’s not to be trifled with. So far, 32 people in the US got sick between October 8 and 31, of whom 13 have been hospitalized. In Canada, six people have been hospitalized out of a reported 18 cases. So far, no deaths have been reported. Because of how long it can take before the CDC gets wind of a case, the agency thinks it won’t yet know about cases happening since the first few weeks of November, so those numbers will probably change.”

This is taking the world by storm and it's so unexpected so yes it will take time before more information unfolds but as a Vegan i'm very worried.

Jeez, is getting now that we don't know what is and isn't safe to eat. One minute something is good for you, the next it isn't .. It's very confusing

Being Vegan must be hard is it not ? Veggie is easy for me, but Vegan.. how can you go without eating cheese :haha: :drool:

I'm tired of being told every week that something is going to kill me. So far, it hasn't.

I will carry on eating Caesar Salad at my leisure.

If I'm wrong and I die, don't worry, I have a Legacy Facebook friend who has instructions to log on Yo and give away all my stuff. :haha:

Thank you to all my wonderful YoWorld friends. You are the reason why I am here and I love you ALL.

Just use basic hygiene measures and all will be fine: wash your veggie accurately under cold running water. And/or SOAK all fresh produce in an ANTIBACTERIAL solution. Wash your hands and the kitchen workspace if came in touch with the unwashed product! Never put the veggies back in a container used to store the unwashed product as well. Are you still not feeling safe? Just COOK the thing! BOIL it, for a few minutes! Heat will 100% kill any bacteria, E. Coli included! Boiled lettuce may not be fresh and crunchy but still yummy, there are plenty of recipes to follow to use it.
Hygiene is the key, education helps, your lettuce is saved from waste, you're welcome ;)

Never even occurred to me that spring mix would be included. Ut oh - ate that yesterday at the restaurant - hope they washed it good.
It usually turns out that organic lettuce wasn't affected, and that's what I always buy, but I wouldn't take any chances. I feel sorry for the farmers that are losing a lot of money, though.

Romaine Lettuce Could Be Back In Stores Soon since some of It is safe to eat again according to the FDA.

You mean "thread"?
Not many people know they're safe to eat again and the decision is not final, a recall is highly possible still. :thumbsup:
