It seems these salad kits have been an issue on and off for years now.

Even whole lettuce does. Too many companies not giving their illegal workers a place to go to the bathroom, so they go in the fields. :(

Or polluted river water.

Protip: wash your veggies before consuming raw.

If you boil your lettuce for an hour there shouldn't be a problem. 8O

Like meat, e-coli only lives on the outside. When you grind it up, then it lives on the inside.

Just don't grind up your lettuce any more, and you should be good with just a rinse. Or cook lettuce to 75C to reduce the risk.

De boss man sez it's dem dirty migrant workers. Just cuz we don't let 'em have breaks or washroom facilities, they squat right there in the field and wipe with lettuce leaves.
The Dr is right, pasteurize your lettuce for 3 minutes in the microwave before consuming. Or switch to the new Dr Oinkers prewashed irradiated GMO lettuce.

Down here we're seeing the E. coli tied to feral pigs. Typically occurs around Salinas where the Monterey and Carmel liberals won't allow the farmers to kill off the pigs. :roll:

Why do they have to be 'let'? Around here, wild pigs are invasive. There are no seasons for invasive animals, and no daily limit. PDT_Armataz_01_36
