E. Coli Mystery Solved


By: Megan Talley

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The FDA finally found the cause of the mysterious E. Coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce.

The agency says the cause is what’s called the “end of season” harvest located in 6 California counties. This leading to the agency asking lettuce producers to put the product date and origin clearly on their labels.

To help with tracing, a task force has been established to determine better solutions for labeling lettuce long-term.

The E. Coli outbreak has sickened 43 people in 12 states as well as 22 in Canada.
