Experts assure lettuce sold in supermarket is safe

Experts have assured the general public in Australia that pre-packed lettuce that is sold in super markets is safe for consumption.

There are rising concerns over the pre-packed lettuce after an increase in the number of salmonella cases linked to some products. Experts said that the number of confirmed cases has reached 62 and there are 30 potential cases that are being examined in other states of the country.

The authorities have narrowed down the infection to the lettuce supplied by the Victorian company Tripod Farmers after studying the food history of people affected by salmonella or salmonella anatomy strain infections. The lettuce distributed by Victorian-based company Tripod Farmers was recalled on Thursday.

Fresh Produce Safety Centre technology manager Richard Bennett said that the people should not be worried about lettuce sold in super markets. He said, "Any product on the retail shelf now is fresh, safe and healthy. It could have doubled overnight but it didn't, which tells us the health authorities and retailers have been swift and effective in their recall." He also said that the number of infection will tap off as the infection period was a maximum 72 hours.
