Lettuce E. coli scare over

Posted: Updated:

Romaine lettuce is again safe to eat. The nation just experienced one of its most deadly E. coli outbreaks linked to romaine lettuce. About 200 people got sick during the outbreak and five people died. The food poisoning outbreak was traced to tainted irrigation water in a canal in Arizona where most of the country's romaine is grown. Officials with the centers for disease control and prevention said the outbreak, which began in the spring, is now over and the tainted romaine should be gone from restaurants and grocery stores. They're investigation how the bacteria got into the canal and whether there is contamination anywhere else.
