I don’t think the E Coli is from the harvested lettuce originally.
I’ve watched at the store as human after human has touched five heads of lettuce before settling on the first one… just like a kid in a toy store.
I’ve also watched as human after human skipped the needless hassle of washing their hands and danced merrily out of the restroom… at a restaurant!!!
These stories correlate.
Humans are spreading these diseases.
I blame people.
