Restaurants Assure Customers Their Romaine Lettuce is Safe


After the recent E. coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce, restaurants are trying to calm fears of customers.

Mom and pop restaurants and major chains are checking with their suppliers and they are confident that their lettuce isn't from the contaminated batch from Yuma, Arizona.

If there's any doubt, restaurants are replacing romaine with iceberg and other kinds of lettuce. 

The CDC first reported a multi-state outbreak of E. coli from romaine lettuce on April 10th. Last week, they advised consumers not to eat romaine heads or bagged romaine salads unless they knew it wasn't from Yuma. 84 people in 19 states have gotten sick from this latest E. coli issue.

Have you stayed away from salad since the announcement?
