People shouldn't eat it. Stores shouldn't sell it. Restaurants shouldn't serve it. That's what the Centers for Disease Control is saying about Romaine Lettuce, which they believe has become tainted by a nasty string of E. Coli.
CDC Spokesman Tom Skinner says the warning is so broad because they are having issues finding the source.
Publix Supermarkets says all romaine lettuce has been removed from its produce sections. That follows a warning from the Centers for Disease Control of an E.Coli outbreak in the U.S. and Canada linked to romaine lettuce. The CDC says more than 30 people in eleven states, not including Florida, have become ill. A full refund is being offered to customers who bring in romaine purchased at Publix.
