This could also make rabbits sick, so please throw away any romaine lettuce you have.

Here are the CDC’s recommendations, from yesterday’s Washington Post article:

“‘This advice includes all types or uses of romaine lettuce, such as whole heads of romaine, hearts of romaine, and bags and boxes of precut lettuce and salad mixes that contain romaine, including baby romaine, spring mix, and Caesar salad,’ the CDC said. ‘If you do not know if the lettuce is romaine or whether a salad mix contains romaine, do not eat it and throw it away.’

The agency also advised consumers to wash and sanitize drawers and shelves where the lettuce was stored. People usually become sick within three or four days of consuming lettuce contaminated with the E. coli, according to the CDC.”
