Be careful! It could be in your refrigerator...contains 2 types of lettuce (iceberg and romaine), red cabbage, and carrots.

I used to wash bagged salad, but have gotten lax. I will start again.

I always, always wash bagged lettuce. Unfortunately, most restaurants don't, so that is something else to consider.

To me bagged lettuce tastes odd. I use it on occasion but prefer to make up my own bags which last 3 or 4 days.

I've been getting bagged spinach lately, as my 17 year old daughter will eat it. I like the mixed greens but the red lettuce seems to go bad much faster than the others in the mixed greens containers. So I'll pass on the mixed greens if the sell by date isn't at least a week out.

For lettuce I usually make my own from Romaine hearts. It lasts much longer than the pre-washed/pre-cut romaine stuff in the bags. I'll clean two heads at a time and it usually lasts us a couple of days.

That original post was from July 2013. So pay no attention to the recall link.
