Minnesota finds E. coli in lettuce bags

Produce News reports that for the first time, a lab has found E. coli O157:H7 in two bags of prepackaged lettuce in connection to the Dole lettuce recall.
In Minnesota, 23 people have become sick because of the E. coli outbreak linked to the bagged salads.
Dole says that the prewashed, prepackaged salads do not need to be washed before serving, and the Food & Drug Administration agreed.
The Minnesota Department of Agriculture is working with FDA and the California Department of Food and Agriculture to find out how the bacteria got into the lettuce.
