I can't get used to kale, so I tried raw nappa cabbage (shredded) and now I'm hooked. My 2 favorite supermarkets finally got their romaine restocked but I didn't buy the one labeled Coachella, California until I checked the web. I guess this can happen to any veggies.

I can definitely tell you my markets are low on leafy greens. I've been buying parsley and baby kale for my salads.

My local grocery stores are still fairly short on all leafy greens, even though the CDC has pinpointed the region. I shop mostly at Aldi and their leafy green section is more or less bare! So are Target's and WalMarts. At least some are available. Yummy!

I live in NJ. I see romaine hearts on the shelf and one is labeled as grown in Coachella Valley, CA in Riverside County which is NOT THE GROWING REGION associated with the current Romaine Alert.

I've learned to enjoy Nappa Cabbage in my salad.

NITEMAN3D,

I went to Italy for vacation the first week of November. While there, I shopped at different produce stands in different cities.

On the sign with the cost of the fruit or veggie, was an origin of the item. It might have said, mushrooms from Tuscany. oranges from Sicily. artichokes from Emilia Romagna. Tomatoes, EU.

If you were buying romaine lettuce, it would have said lettuce from CA or AZ.

All we have here in the US are those produce stickers that might say, grapes from chile. gala apples from new zealand. Whole Foods is one of the few companies that says if the item is local, conventional or imported.

Here in the US, unless you buy directly from a local farmer's market, you really don't know where your food comes from. so, it's no wonder the CDC had to put a ban on all romaine until it knew where the infected lettuce originated.

I think the CDC is advising producers to label it saying it's not from affected counties?

As per Forbes
consumers, retailers and restaurants should avoid romaine lettuce from these six California counties: Monterey, San Benito, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, and Ventura, according to the latest update from the Food and Drug Administration. If you don’t know the source of your lettuce, federal health agencies warn, don’t eat it.

I have a lot of them.

I am sad by romaine lettuce. I love that type of lettuce.

I had bought a package for a dinner salad on Thanksgiving and still had the receipt so I took it back to the store and got a refund.

Thanks for the alert. (This is the second incident in a few months.)

No excuse for this. This problem should have been corrected by now.
It just keeps happening again and again. emoticon

Haven’t bought any since the last purge.....have bought butter lettuce and spinach. Iceburg has a nasty taste.

Just bought a pack of six heads and called the grocery at about five o'clock to see if they would exchange it, they knew nothing about it yet. She had just filled the salad bar. They actually called me back to tell me they would exchange it. I guess it's back to iceberg and spinach.
