Yesterday, the United States Food & Drug Administration tweeted an official update about the romaine-linked E. coli outbreak. The FDA's update said, "It is highly unlikely that product from the Yuma growing region is still in the supply chain. Consumers can be confident that romaine currently available for purchase is not part of the investigation." Up until now, the CDC has advised against consuming any romaine
unless the lettuce is confirmed to not have been grown in Yuma. Since the origins of produce are often difficult for consumers to find out, many people were avoiding romaine altogether. As of yesterday, however, the romaine you pick up at the grocery store or order at restaurants should be safe to eat.
