The CDC is telling people not to eat romaine lettuce again

There's another E.Coli scare.

Federal officials are once again advising Americans not to eat any romaine lettuce, and restaurants and stores not to sell it, amid another E.Coli scare.

The CDC has issued a Food Safety Alert for romaine, after a multi-state outbreak of E.Coli linked to the lettuce.

"Because no common grower, supplier, distributor, or brand has been identified, consumers should avoid any and all romaine lettuce," the CDC alert said.

"Consumers who have any type of romaine lettuce in their home should not eat it and should throw it away, even if some of it was eaten and no one has gotten sick."

The alert relates to types of romaine including whole heads, hearts of romaine, and bags and boxes of pre-cut lettuce and salad mixes that contain romaine or baby romaine, which includes spring mixes and Caesar salads.

Restaurants and retailers are also being told not to serve or sell any romaine lettuce.

It follows a similar alert was issued in May and June, after an outbreak linked to a lettuce farm in Yuma, Arizona, resulted in dozens being sickened across the country, and 2 people dying in Minnesota.
