Move over, spinach: Recall for e-coli on lettuce!October 9, 2006
This is a sad report for those of us who love green. Besides a recent spinach recall, there is a new one involving lettuce here in the U.S. The Nunes Company has found E. coli in its irrigation system, newspapers are reporting. While clearly bad for Nunes, this is also not a good sign for the U.S. produce hub, California. I suspect growers and food retailers are going to really feel the pinch as the public loses faith in greens. Let’s hope this turns around soon. The first story I found is here, and I’ll update when I see more on the wire services tomorrow AM.
