Consumer Reports Says You Should Avoid Romaine Lettuce
Still, the CDC says it does not have enough information to recommend people in the US avoid any particular food. This strand of E.Coli has caused tainted produce, including romaine lettuce, in 2006 and between 2011 and 2013.

The explosion took place just outside the Varby Gard subway station in Huddinge, a residential district that is part of greater Stockholm. Technicians are still working on it.

Originally investigated as a murder, police now do not believe the couple was targeted. "That's all we know", a local fire service chief told Swedish Television, which also reported that police and medics were at the location. "There were very violent gangs" at the time, he said, adding he was "surprised" by this blast because he thought those groups had since disappeared. "I don't dare imagine what would have happened if one or several children had found the hand grenade".

In August 2016, an eight-year-old boy was killed by a grenade thrown into a flat in a working-class area of Gothenburg.
