Romaine lettuce, a common household vegetable, was recently contaminated with E. coli. The Food and Drug Administration has gotten to the bottom of where its coming from. FDA investigators traced the start of the E. coli lettuce crisis back to the Central Coast growing region of California. The FDA, over the Thanksgiving weekend, informed Americans that it was safe to eat Romaine Lettuce, as long as it was not from the Central Coast region of California. Stores and Supermarkets were urged, during the outbreak, to get rid of all romaine lettuce. It was a shame to waist so much food, while people are starving every day.

Escherichia coli, better known as E. coli, is a bacterium found in the intestines of humans and other animals. Some strains can cause harmful effects, especially in older people and children. Some symptoms of E. Coli may include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain,diarrhea, malaise, loss of appetite, and dehydration. At least 32 people across 11 states have been impacted, along with 13 hospitalized, and 5 dead. As with any case of food poisoning, consumers need to be diligent and react to any warning released by the FDA.
