NEW YORK – US health officials say it's better to eat lettuce lettuce. Just check the label.
The Food and Drug Administration narrows the warning of last week's blanket when people say they shouldn't eat any type of romaine due to the E. coli outbreak.
On Monday, the agency recently said that the romaine, which was harvested in Arizona, Florida, Mexico, and the Imperial Valley of Mexico were good to eat. When diseases start, romaine is not being sent from these places.
The dirty romaine seems to have come from the Central Coast area of California.
The product industry plans to start putting harvest dates and regions into labels. For romaine that does not come in the packaging, markets and retailers are requested to post information, including the registry.
