TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) – Centers for Disease Control are advising consumers not to eat Romanian salad, and retailers and restaurants do not serve or sell anything unless they learn more about a new outbreak of E. coli.
The CDC warning covers all types of Romanian salad from any region.
Consumers who have salad in their home should throw it away immediately, even if some were eaten and no one got sick. These include all types of Roman lettuce, such as whole heads, hearts and bags, and green salad boxes and salads, such as Caesar salad.
The CDC said that consumers should wash and disinfect the drawers or shelves where the romaina salad was stored and follow these five steps to clean the refrigerator carefully.
If you think you have an E. coli infection, ask your doctor, write what you ate a week before you get sick and report the disease to the health department.
This incident is similar to the outbreak of E. coli since the beginning of this summer, when five people died and 200 were sick of Roma salmon cultivated on a farm in Yuma, Arizona.
