Report: Romaine Still On Shelves Of Some Brooklyn Stores Even After E. Coli Warning From Health Officials

10

Health officials told people to stop eating romaine lettuce because of a new E. coli outbreak on Tuesday, but it was still being sold in some Brooklyn stores a day after the news broke about the dozens of people sickened, WPIX11 reports. “My customers and I trust this company,” a worker in a 13th Avenue store said.

A sign says everything was checked and is safe next to the lettuce in the store. Managers said there’s no need to worry because they believe in the assurances from the company in question. There’s a three-wash process for that brand.

At another store, customers said they were willing to buy the romaine. “I would risk it because the company, I would trust the company,” one shopper said.

  1. Why shouldn’t they? We bought a romaine lettuce mix package from a heimishe company and had a delicious salad for lunch yesterday. B”H we all survived. My wife and I are ok B”H. We both left for work on time this morning. The sky didn’t fall. The CDC is so corrupt and in on the take, they make the FBI look like a righteous organization.

  2. Government is so corrupt I’d recommend you ignore the speed limit and drive intoxicated.

    Sakanta is chamira m’isurah!

  3. Fake news! This has nothing to do with a cleaning process. Bodek says their lab testing cleared it from e coli. Postiv says that the problem isn’t relevant to greenhouse grown.

  4. ATT:”Big government can’t be trusted”,
    I BET YOU ALSO WALK ACROSS 13 AVE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BLOCK HOLDING 2 CELL PHONES IN EACH HAND NEVER LOOKING AT THE TRAFFIC.
    I bet you also triple park on that same street not caring about the rest of the world.
    I BET YOU BROUOGHT BACK YOUR LOTTOO TICKET FOR REFUNDS BECAUSE YOU DIDNT WIN AND THE AGENT PRESSED THEWRONG NUMBER.
    AND YOU WEAR A BLACK HAT AND ALONG BEARD MOCKING SEPHARDS WHO PUT OUR ZTIZTIT INSIDE.
    LIKE one black hat wearer who would not return my greeting of SHABBAT SHALOM WHILE SHOPPING IN ‘his’ PAINT SUPPLY STORE ON 4th AVE . YEAH YOU GOT THE SPIRIT OF UNITY. DID YOU SELL YOUR HOUSE IN YERUSHALAYIM OR ARE YOU BUYING 2 MORE…
    I TRY TO SHOP ”’JEWISH”’ BUT YOU PREVENT THE UNITY WHILE YOU SIT ALL DAY IN THE KOLLEL WHILE YOUR WIFE SLAVES FOR YOU.. WELL I HAVE TO FEED MY CAMELS…WHILE YOU ABUSE THE PEOPLE….

    • Your obsession with alleged abuse against Sefardim is absurd. Take a walk up east 7th, 8th, 9th, & 10th in Flatbush. Look at the monster mansions, one bigger than the other. Look at the latest Mercedes in the driveway, one for him & one for the wife. The teenager’s have Lexus’. All that wealth belongs to Sefardim. They are not the ones being abused. Save us the crocodile tears.

  5. Bring me my violin : TAKE A WALK IN BORO PARK AROUND IN THE 40s STREETs LOOK AT THOSE MANSIONS..SAME PRICE..as FLATBUSH WHERE I LIVE, and yes same price…look in your garages at your cars… AND then YOUR RABBIS COME TO US FOR MONEY AND WE GIVE WITH A SMILE AND LOVE BECAUSE WE BELIEVE IN ONENESS. Its you black hatters even destroying our Sephardic community teaching different Rabbis different kipot each in their own group not mixing….WE USE TO BE ONE Sephardic community, one rabbi..we unfortuanly learning your ways of a rabbi on a block…even dressing like you now…neglecting our camels and our shawarma recipes are being lost. YOUR CULTS SHOWED THE WAY…AND WE COPIED SADLY..SO YOUR POINT TO ME IS COVETING THEY NEIGHBOR, JEALOUSY, ENVY…..YOUR BLACK HAT MEANS NOTHING….

    HEY RIGHTOUS BLACK HATTER, another point..I THOUGH MONEY IS A BLESSING….
    HEY BLACK HATTER I THOUGHT YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSE TO COVET YOUR NEIGHBOR,
    EVEN THE GOYEEM KNOW THAT ONE.
    HEY BLACK HATTER, I AM SURPRISED YOU SPEAK ENGLISH.

  6. The reporter clearly didn’t know what he was talking about. The CDC, at the time of her report, already said the outbreak probably came from CA.

    Even if not, since they use their own greenhouses and NO OTHER NON KOSHER brand uses it too, it would be safe to say the problem wasn’t theirs.

    Aside for the Kosher Taste family of brands and Bodek, there were other greenhouse grown brands claiming they were okay too.
