Despite the current recall of romaine lettuce sweeping the country, the NJ Department of Agriculture wants you to know that romaine grown in New Jersey is safe. as it is just now coming to market.
Once again, the recommendation is to BUY LOCAL. So go to your local natural foods store, like the Whole Earth Center in Princeton, and buy your lettuces (and other produce etc.) there. All the produce at WEC is organic, and as much of it as possible is locally grown. You should also start finding locally grown romaine soon at farmers markets and farm stands in your area.
