Five People In WA Now Sick From E. Coli Linked To Romaine Lettuce
The warnings have been around for weeks from the CDC, 'don't eat romaine lettuce from Yuma, AZ'. If you're like me, I stopped eating romaine lettuce all together... per the advice of Consumer Reports.
Today, the Seattle Times is reporting that there are now 5 people sick from E. Coli linked to romaine lettuce.
According to their report, "As of Friday afternoon, physicians reported three cases related to the outbreak in King County and two in Spokane County".
Nothing in Yakima County... yet. Let's keep it that way:) Throw away that romaine lettuce, and maybe even avoid it for the time being.
