The news and stories that matter, delivered weekday mornings.

In good news for salad lovers everywhere, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is now advising that it is safe to crunch into romaine lettuce once again. Iowa, Nebraska, and OR have now joined the list of states reporting E. coli cases linked to romaine lettuce. The current outbreak has been traced to the Yuma, Arizona, growing region, the source of virtually all lettuce sold in this country during the winter months.

The CDC added that the last date of harvest for the romaine lettuce from the Yuma growing region was April 16th.

Unless you know where the lettuce came from, consumers anywhere in the USA who have any store-bought romaine lettuce at home should not eat it and should throw it away. People who got sick range from 1 to 88 years, with a median age of 29. "It takes two to three weeks between when a person becomes ill with E. coli and when the illness is reported to CDC".

The most recent cases reported by the CDC started May 2, part of the 23 new cases across the nation in the last week, bringing the total to 172.

The CDC estimates that foodborne illnesses affect 47.8 million people in the USA every year, putting 127,000 into the hospital and killing more than 3,000.
