Ontarians are still being advised to avoid romaine lettuce after the Public Health Agency of Canada said the leafy vegetable has been liked to an E-coli outbreak.
There were 41 cases of E-coli under investigation in total in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador as of December 28th.
Some Canadian restaurant chains have stopped serving romaine lettuce because of the outbreak — which has also claimed the life of one person.
Cara Operations — which operates Swiss Chalet, Kelsey’s and other chains — says it’s making the move “out of an abundance of caution.”
Boston Pizza has also temporarily suspended sales of romaine at its locations in the affected provinces.
