Romaine lettuce was recently removed from the shelves of local grocery stores.

The Public Health Agency of Canada stated that there were several instances of E. coli illness in the country. None of the cases were reported in Alberta.
 
As a precautionary measure, Walmart, Loblaws (No Frills), Freson Bros. and Sobeys (Safeway) stopped selling romaine lettuce in November.

Since then, the new stock of lettuce has been deemed safe and all of the grocery stores in Fort Saskatchewan aside from Walmart have restocked their shelves.
 
No deaths were reported with the illness.
 
The most likely source of the outbreak is believed to be from the California region.
