BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — You may want to check your lettuce before eating it. The CDC says that a recent E. coli outbreak has been linked to romaine lettuce grown in Salinas, Calif.
A total of 67 cases of E. coli have been reported across the country, in 19 states. At least 39 people have been hospitalized, and six are reported to be suffering from kidney failure.
The CDC suggests looking to see if there is a label showing where the lettuce was grown. Any romaine lettuce grown in Salinas, no matter the brand or use-by date, should be thrown away.
