A food company is recalling lettuce sold in 23 states and the District of Columbia because of an E. coli outbreak that has sickened at least 19 people, three of them with life-threatening symptoms.

The Food and Drug Administration said Thursday that 12 people had been hospitalized and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it was looking at 10 other cases probably linked to the outbreak.

Freshway Foods of Sidney, Ohio, said it was recalling romaine lettuce sold under the Freshway and Imperial Sysco brands because of a possible link to the E. coli outbreak.
...
The lettuce was sold in Alabama, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

No information as of yet as to whether the Sensuous variety is included in the recall.

College students at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Ohio State in Columbus and Daemen College in Amherst, N.Y., are among those affected, according to local health departments in those states.

I wonder which of the places around here that I eat at won't have lettuce today.

I keep wondering just how veggies are getting e-coli. I thought it was only in ground up meat..but it is turning up everywhere these days. So is someone at the packing plant use it for toilet paper before packing??

Maybe from animal feces? Farms generally do have animals on them. (I don't mean that to sound sarcastic, but it does for some reason).

And then there's the fertilizer aspect.

Lettuce: not so sensuous when there's E. coli right round in it.

That's why you always clean up before you toss somebody's salad.    icon_twisted

E. coli is an enteric bacteria, but it's very common and does just fine in soil, decaying vegetables, and water.
