Though the romaine lettuce E. coli outbreak sickened more people in more states over the last week, the true news in Wednesday’s CDC update concerns the lettuce.
It might be safe to eat romaine lettuce again.
Romaine lettuce of all varieties from the Yuma, Ariz., region has been blamed as the source of this outbreak. But the last shipment of romaine from Yuma left on April 16 and the growing season there is over.
“It is unlikely that any romaine lettuce from the Yuma growing region is still available in stores or restaurants due to its 21-day shelf life,” the Centers for Disease Control said Wednesday. “It takes two to three weeks between when a person becomes ill with E. coli and when the illness is reported to CDC. The most recent illnesses reported to CDC started when romaine lettuce from the Yuma growing region was likely still available in stores, restaurants, and in peoples’ homes.”
