    Wow, that is a pretty broad call out there. This happens every couple of years, but I'm not really sure as to why.

    I actually eat lettuce a lot. I do understand that it's got to be washed really good before use, but I still enjoy eating it.

    The point of contamination is usually the growers. But to have a total recall, across the market, is unusual. The report says it has hit in 11 US states and two Canadian provinces.

    I also note the advice to NOT use antibiotics in treatment...
