retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have announced that it is again safe to consume romaine lettuce, and that the E. coli crisis - which killed one person and sickened 172 people in 32 states - has passed.

The news was delivered via Twitter.

From the CDC: “The romaine lettuce being sold and served today is NOT the romaine linked to illnesses.”

From the FDA: “Consumers can be confident that romaine currently available for purchase is not part of this outbreak investigation.”

The nationwide E. coli outbreak was traced to romaine lettuce grown in the Yuma, Arizona, region, with health officials recommending that consumers avoid pretty much all romaine until more is known about the outbreak.

Mrs. Content Guy is thrilled. This whole romaine thing has really wreaked havoc with her Caesar Salad habit.
