Federal health officials warn consumers nationwide to avoid romaine lettuce processed by one Washington state company.
The lettuce apparently caused an E. coli outbreak that sickened at least 29 people.
The Food and Drug Administration says the Spokane Produce product was sold under several different brand names, and the agency doesn't have a complete list.
Just in case, though, FDA urges all consumers to throw away five-pound bags of "Romaine Toss" sold by Spokane Produce.
It also wants grocery produce managers to see if smaller packages of romaine came from that company.
