if not what are the salads like
Yes they have located the location of the tainted lettuce. So if restaurants serve romaine lettuce, it should be safe. If you are still a little iffy about it, it never hurts to ask where they got their lettuce from .I found romaine at my local fruits and veggies place on Tuesday too. There were recent articles saying that romaine was returning to store shelves starting this past Tuesday, and they think they have identified the location the tainted romaine was from.
All food, fresh or packaged should be required to have such a label, then we can know exactly where our food is coming from. Obviously for packaged/processed foods it may have to have a label with multiple regions detailing what came from where, but still would be nice and I would think it would make tracking down issues in the food supply much easier.Romaine lettuce sold in stores now carries labels listing the region where the produce was grown, along with its harvest date, the FDA said. By checking these labels, consumers can quickly determine that the produce is safe to eat.
Romaine is back in several stores. I just saw it yesterday at Trader Joe's as well as Target. In Orange County.There is no romaine anywhere in SoCal. Not grocery stores, not restaurants.
I’m pregnant and so freaked that I can’t even bring myself to eat ANY salad right now. So sad.
