"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is telling consumers, restaurants and retailers to throw away all romaine lettuce. Officials warned that the lettuce could be at risk of being contaminated with E.coli, which can lead to kidney failure. E. coli infection is usually diagnosed by testing a stool sample."
