Freshway Foods E. Coli Lettuce Recall?
Freshway Foods today said it was voluntarily recalling products containing romaine lettuce sold chiefly in the eastern United States because of potential contamination with E.coli bacteria.
Food and Drug Administration investigators are looking at a farm in Yuma, Arizona, as a possible source of a widespread E. coli outbreak in romaine lettuce.
The romaine lettuce, sold under the brands Freshway Foods and Imperial Sysco, is being recalled across 23 states and the District of Columbia.
Is it safe to boil the lettuce before eating it?
