It's not the first, and it certainly won't be the last, but today I read yet another salmonella warning online (thank goodness for the Internet, eh?). I try to keep informed and check out the reports, and luckily we've never had to worry...
Hmmmm, but this sounded vaguely familiar....
So of course when I got home the first thing I did was to inspect the two bags of lettuce in the fridge; one of which I had already eaten from.
Fresh Express? Check.
"S" in the Product Code? Check.
Best Before Date? UnCheck... mine are from the batch four days later.
But if you think these puppies aren't getting drop-kicked straight into the garbage, you'd be sadly mistaken.
After all, with all this advance warning they give us, I'm not taking a chance that NEXT week they'll extend the warning to Best Before May 20 too.
I can't wait to get my own garden-fresh lettuce growing again... and I just realized this: why the heck do I have TWO bags of week-old lettuce in my fridge??? Well, to be more exact, in the garbage.
