ROMAINE LETTUCE: "Mostly" Safe to Eat Again

Great news for salad eaters! The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it's OK to resume eating romaine lettuce so long as it was not grown in certain parts of California.

The CDC issued a lettuce warning last week after an E. coli outbreak made 43 people sick in 12 states. Now federal health officials say they've narrowed the source of the tainted lettuce to farms in central and northern California.

Although officials haven't been able to identify the specific growers or distributors of the bad lettuce, they say it is safe to consume it as long as it doesn't come from the central coast region of California.
