Ok - considering I just bought a bag at Costco . . .

Wish they'd give more details.

So... no brand names given, I guess that means that ALL should be avoided. I wonder if some of the pickers used the leaves as a toilet roll.

Haha toilet roll. Well they were showing on the news now that stores are starting to take off every brand off the shelfs. So I am playing it safe and going with the romaine lettuce.

Good thing I'm not big on spinach. This same thing happened to Odwalla Juice Company some years back. A couple kids contracted E.Coli and IIRC one or two of them died. Something about cow fecal matter on their farms.

BTW it's S-P-I-N-A-C-H. Just a friendly reminder.

I'm in no danger of eating fresh spinach...or any other vegetable. Ever.
