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.

Patrick Gavin of Politico is reporting that the contract Jonathan Slevin, just six months after being named publisher and president of the Washington Times, will not be renewed. It has certainly been a trying time for the second daily in town over the last few months, which has axed its sports coverage, gone through layoffs and tried to find many other ways to try and cut costs. While WaPo has been able to grow in revenue in the last few financial quarters, mainly on the back of some of its non-media entities like Kaplan education, things are certainly not going as well in the other press shop in town.

Update, 2:03 p.m.: Patrick Gavin has taken to Twitter to stick up for his report, even as a Times spokesmen is denying it.
