Modern Farmer - 7/16/2013.
By Andre Gallant - Here’s the bad, and over-reported, news: Lettuce is making a lot of people sick. Earlier this year, when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released their comprehensive Attribution of Foodborne Illness for the years 1998 to 2008, news websites drummed up plenty of hits by reporting that lettuce, and their leafy ilk, account for nearly a quarter of all reported foodborne illnesses, due mainly to pre-cut greens bought in sealed, plastic bags at the grocery store.
