Bags of romaine lettuce sold under the Freshway Foods, Freshway and Imperial Sysco brands are being recalled because of  a possible link to the E. coli outbreak.

According to the Washington Times, “The recalled lettuce has a “best if used by” date of May 12 or earlier. The recall also affects “grab and go” salads sold at Kroger, Giant Eagle, Ingles Markets and Marsh grocery stores.”

The lettuce was sold in DC and 23 other states and is thought to be responsible for 22 cases of E. coli in New York, Michigan and Ohio.

Washington Post’s The Checkup blog is reporting that Nestle is recalling all of its refrigerated Toll House Cookie dough because of potential e coli contamination. Since it’s impossible for a human to resist eating at least some raw cookie dough (if not the entire tube) you should return it to its place of purchase.
