Romaine E Coli contamination Tag

What you need to know about Romaine Lettuce …………………..

How does Romaine get contaminated?  Two primary reasons.  Maybe the grower’s irrigation source water has been affected – maybe they are near a feed lot?  Maybe a raccoon drowned in their well?  Or, the grower added manure to their field to increase soil fertility and it wasn’t composted properly. Then while harvesting, the lettuce cutter sticks their knife in the soil, picks up bacteria, and transfers it to lettuce.
