1. Not very reassuring

to see a skull and swords avatar upon opening this thread. TAKE THE CAULIFLOWER RECALL SERIOUSLY! That's the message that I get.

2. So Glad Those Burdensome Food Safety and Clean Water Regulations Were Rolled Back

Freedom - now we are free to be sickened by the food supply. Thank you Donald Trump and GOP!

3. Trump administration rolled back water-testing registrations.

https://www.wired.com/story/the-science-is-clear-dirty-farm-water-is-making-us-sick/

But six months before people were sickened by the contaminated romaine, President Donald Trumpís FDA Ė responding to pressure from the farm industry and Trumpís order to eliminate regulations Ė shelved the water-testing rules for at least four years.

Despite this deadly outbreak, the FDA has shown no sign of reconsidering its plan to postpone the rules. The agency also is considering major changes, such as allowing some produce growers to test less frequently or find alternatives to water testing to ensure the safety of their crops.

The FDAís lack of urgency dumbfounds food safety scientists.

ďMystifying, isnít it?Ē said Trevor Suslow, a food safety expert at the University of California, Davis. ďIf the risk factor associated with agricultural water use is that closely tied to contamination and outbreaks, there needs to be something now. Ö I canít think of a reason to justify waiting four to six to eight years to get started.Ē

6. I roast it coated with olive oil and some herbs and seasoning usually.

The only thing is handling it safely.
Whattabout when people cut florets and use raw in dips? Ut-oh.

I haven't purchased any kind of lettuce since the romaine fiasco. None. My husband eats iceberg salads from restaurants where we get take out. I won't. They say the hydroponic is safe. You still need to wash it thoroughly.

8. Smart! Then YOU know how it's grown. I'll look into that when warm weather comes back.

We have no suitable windows to be able to grow indoors.

9. I have an Aerogarden

Itís self contained, so you donít need extra light. Itís expensive, but I already had it because I use it to start plants in the spring. Three weeks after planting romaine, I have a usable quantity of lettuce with more coming along every day. Iím going to have to give lettuce up in April, though, because I want to start nicotiana Sylvestrus in my Aerogarden.

10. I had a feeling you had some sort of set-up other than pots in the sunlight.

I'll look into that.

This nicotiana, is it the decorative tobacco plant?

11. Yes, decorative tobacco

You can usually buy the smaller varieties at the nursery, but the big ones you have to start yourself.
