If you have any store-bought romaine lettuce in your home, do not eat it. Throw it away, even if someone has eaten part of it and not gotten sick.
The CDC has issued an E. coli warning about all romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona area.
No one should eat romaine lettuce - or any lettuce at all - unless they can be sure it's not from Arizona, federal health officials said Friday. This includes whole heads and hearts of romaine, chopped romaine, and salads and salad mixes containing romaine lettuce.
USA health officials on Friday told consumers to throw away any store-bought romaine lettuce they have in their kitchens and warned restaurants not to serve it amid an E. coli outbreak that has sickened more than 50 people in several states.
The FDA recommends that consumers ask grocers, restaurants, and other food service establishments where their romaine lettuce originated, and avoid any romaine lettuce, whether chopped, whole head or hearts, that originated from Yuma.
Saquon Barkley wants to be Browns' 'LeBron James'
He's open to playing for the Cleveland Browns , even if that means falling to the No. 4 overall pick in the draft. Barkley is seen as a generational running back in the mold of Ezekiel Elliott and Todd Gurley.
Of the people who have been sickened, at least 31 have been hospitalized, including five who developed a type of potentially life-threatening kidney failure known as hemolytic uremic syndrome. No deaths have been reported. During the peak of the harvest season, which runs from mid-November until the beginning of April, the Yuma region supplies most of the romaine sold in the U.S., Alameda said.

Cook meats thoroughly to kill harmful germs. Over to you, what's cooking? Use a food thermometer to check the temperature of the meat. Avoid cross-contamination of food during preparation by washing hands, cutting boards, utensils, and any food preparation surfaces.
Wash fruits and vegetables before eating, unless the package says the contents have been washed.
