    The FDA and CDC have both said to stop serving romaine due to e-coli. What is it with romaine?
    No caesar or Greek salads today.

    Yep, had to place an unplanned produce order for today, since we use a Romaine blend for all salads. Iceberg only for now...ugh

    We use romaine and switched to green leaf lettuce for this recall.

    I havent sold salads since Wednesday morning.
    It was kind of nice not having to worry about salads past few days
    No one cared
    Salads are 10% of sales
    Still hit my numbers

    Added Salads back today, $70 case of Iceberg lettuce from my vegetable vendor,
    Local grocery store had the cases for $36.
    Could only get 1 case, already sold out just for lunch.
    I guess people really missed the salads

    We have switched to iceberg as well. Definitely lower quality, but it sure is cheaper!
