E-coli is a type of bacteria that can cause disease and can be found in almost any food. Although more common in meat products, e-coli can be transferred to any other food product. The market is still recovering from a recent outbreak of E-coli in cucumber, however, a new outbreak has begun. Romaine lettuce is the latest victim of e-coli. There is good news though, you can get rid of e-coli on your vegetables by simply thoroughly washing them. Stay safe!
