Urgent Information about Romaine Lettuce

May 6, 2018

First, we would like you to know that the lettuce we carry at Fresh Madison Market is not from the Yuma, Arizona area and is safe to eat.  However, thanks to a highly virulent strain of E. coli bacteria showing up on romaine lettuce, people are taking extra caution.  Several have been hospitalized and a couple dozen others have been taken ill in states from Washington to Pennsylvania.  The Centers for Disease Control have said you can’t be too careful with this.  If you have romaine lettuce and you don’t know its source, you are advised to get rid of it now.  Again, the romaine we carry is not from that area and if you purchased it from us, your lettuce is fine to eat.  We take extra care to know the source of all the fresh produce we carry, and your safety is our priority.  If you have any questions, please contact us or speak with any of our managers at Fresh Madison Market.
