Romaine lettuce is once again safe to eat. The Centers for Disease Control announced that all the tainted Romaine lettuce should be gone from restaurants and grocery stores and is no longer a risk.

The nation just went through a bad E.coli outbreak that was linked to lettuce.

Five people died more than 200 people got sick.

Officials said the E. coli was found in a canal near Romaine fields in Arizona, which is where the outbreak started and where most of the country’s Romaine is grown.
