FDA gives E-coli warning for romaine lettuce
The FDA tweeted a warning about E-coli involving bags of romaine lettuce.

The Food and Drug Administration gave an E. coli warning involving bags of romaine lettuce Saturday.

In a tweet, the FDA warned consumers regarding packaged single heads of romaine lettuce. They are bagged under the brand Tanimura and Antle.

Consumers should not eat the lettuce, the FDA added. It is believed they were distributed in many states including California.

E. coli is a large group of bacteria found in the intestine of many living organisms, but some strains can lead to illness.

The lettuce brand announced it would voluntarily recall the items. Items falling under this warning are labeled with package dates of 10-15 and 10-16.
