So this doesn’t really affect me because I hate vegetables. Mashed potatoes are cool, carrots are dope, but like I’m not big on salads or anything healthy.
Give me a bacon cheeseburger or a cheese steak any day. That’s my motto. Or steamers. Or Red Lobster cheddar biscuits. Anything green? Hell no.
But because I”m a great guy, and an even better human being – I came across this and felt like potentially saving some of your lives.
“CDC is advising that U.S. consumers not eat any romaine lettuce, and retailers and restaurants not serve or sell any, until we learn more about the outbreak. This investigation is ongoing and the advice will be updated as more information is available.” (Full Link at bottom of my post)
Yikes. Probably not good, especially before oh I don’t know, THE BIGGEST DAY OF FEASTING EVER ACOSS THE WHOLE DAMN COUNTRY.
But yes, this is legit. Continuing, “The CDC alert, issued just two days before Americans sit down for their Thanksgiving dinners, reported that 32 people in 11 states have become sick from eating contaminated romaine. Of those, 13 have been hospitalized, with one patient suffering from a form of kidney failure.”
Apparently the big problem is that the CDC doesn’t know where the contaminated lettuce came from, and because it’s already in so many different states, they’re saying oh shit we are screwed – nobody eat romaine lettuce.
So. In conclusion. Just another reason not to even consider eating healthy. Just go with the meats and potatoes. Life’s too short to die over freaking lettuce of all things. Which isn’t even delicious to begin with.
