On January 25th, 2017, after 2 months of investigations, the U.S Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Association (FDA) declared an end to a deadly Ecoli Outbreak that killed 2 people, hospitalized 22 and sickened many more across the U.S and Canada..

Although U.S officials have not been able to identify the specific type or source of the leafy greens.  It was determined that the contaminated leafy greens were no longer for sale in the marketplace because of their short life span and no new cases being reported.

Because leafy greens are so difficult to clean, restaurant owners must be diligent in preventing cross contamination.
