It’s deja vu all over again. Another E-Coli Outbreak Hits the US.

The great baseball catcher Yogi Berra witnessed a great many heroics during his tenure with the New York Yankees. Reportedly, after watching his teammates Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle hit back-to-back home runs in a game for the umpteenth time, he is reported to have said: It’s déjà vu all over again. When it comes to e-coli and US manufacturers and distributors, it certainly must feel the same way. Freshway Foods of Sidney, Ohio is recalling romaine lettuce because of e-coli contamination. The lettuce, which was sold in more than 25 US states, is suspected of causing more than 19 reported cases of sickness.
