Imperial Valley Update: All-American Canal, E. Coli

Audio

Aired 4/19/09

Tom Fudge: Earlier this month, dozens of people who ate at Taco Bell in several Eastern states became very sick. The cause was E. coli bacteria. And health officials have determined it came from contaminated lettuce used at the restaurants. This has caused some consternation in the Imperial Valley which produces a very large percentage of the nation’s winter lettuce.

All lettuce growers need is another E. coli scare that could put the whole country off a crop that’s vitally important to the region. Fear of a lettuce scare is one of the stories we’re talking about in our latest Imperial Valley update.
