Florida-Grown Romaine Cleared as FDA Continues E. coli Outbreak Investigation

Nov 27, 2018

Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have cleared Florida-grown romaine lettuce. Their ongoing investigation into the multi-state E. coli outbreak has determined that the implicated romaine comes from areas of California. On Nov. 20, the CDC advised the public not to eat any romaine lettuce and, at the same time, the FDA requested that all romaine lettuce in the marketplace be removed.
