US FDA lifts Romaine lettuce advisory

The US Food and Drug Administration has lifted the consumer advisory recommending that we avoid eating Romaine lettuce.

The FDA said products that have been harvested after the 20 November advisory date – and those that do not come from northern and central California – are safe to consume.

They are recommending that products should now be labelled to show where they have come from, along with their date of harvest.

Regions linked to the E.Coli outbreak are no longer harvesting lettuce. But the outbreak has not yet been declared over.
