Investigation of e. Coli outbreak in lettuce reveals need for more protections

Today, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released its findings on the November 2018 nationwide outbreak of E. Coli in romaine lettuce. The ensuing recall warned the public not to eat any romaine lettuce and prompted stores to remove all of that lettuce from their shelves.

In response, U.S. PIRG Consumer Watchdog Adam Garber released the following statement:

The FDA investigation reinforces that our food isn't nearly as safe as it should be. This time, more than 60 people got sick from salads, probably because of a failure to sanitize the water used to grow its romaine lettuce.
