The Department of Health is advising people who have recently purchased romaine lettuce originating from the Salinas, California area to “discard it immediately.”

A government spokesperson said, “Today the Department of Health is advising members of the public who have recently purchased romaine lettuce originating from the Salinas, California area to discard it immediately.

“This follows warnings this week from the FDA and CDC over an E. coli outbreak in romaine lettuce originating from that area.

“The Department has contacted the appropriate wholesalers and grocery stores locally who have removed all impacted stock from their shelves.

“Lettuce from other parts of California and locally-grown romaine lettuce is not impacted and is still on sale.

“For more information about the outbreak visit either FDA link or CDC link.”
