Officials say it’s probably safe to eat romaine lettuce again if you recently bought it.

The Center for Disease Control says the romaine that was grown in Yuma, Arizona was harvested a month ago.

They say the last time romaine was harvested in Yuma was in April.

Now, most of the romaine on the shelves are coming from California.
