Americans are being told it’s alright for them to eat some romaine lettuce again. The important thing is to check the label.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is narrowing its blanket warning from last week, which warned against eating any type of romaine because of an E.coli outbreak.
U.S. health experts say the tainted romaine appears to have come from the central coast region of California, and romaine recently harvested in Arizona, Florida, Mexico and California’s Imperial Valley is safe to eat.
It is not clear if Health Canada is saying it is safe to eat any kind of romaine here in this country.
There have 18 cases of E.coli in Ontario and Quebec and one in New Brunswick.
