Arizona Farm Linked To E. coli In Some Romaine Lettuce
As we told you here on April 14 and here on April 21, according to WILX-TV, your chopped bagged Romaine lettuce could be contaminated with E. coli. The solution was to throw that type of lettuce away immediately if you had any in your possession.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said at the time that 50 plus people in 16 states which included Michigan, had gotten sick after eating chopped, bagged romaine lettuce which was believed to be at risk of E. coli contamination.
Now, the Lansing State Journal says that health officials have identified a farm in Yuma, Arizona that they say is linked to eight cases of E. coli that made people sick. Officials say that whole heads of Romaine lettuce produced at Harrison Farms was sold to a prison in Alaska where some inmates became ill after eating it. However, officials also said that Harrison Farms can't be connected to the other cases of E. coli so far.
