TACO BELL TO REMOVE GREEN ONIONS

Comments Off

You will not be able to get scallions from Taco Bell any time soon after it reported that testing suggested that the green onions may be responsible for the e. coli outbreak that has made more than 40 people sick in three states.

In a press release Taco Bell said that preliminary testing by an independent lab found three samples of green onions that appear to have a dangerous strain of the bacteria.

Nine of 46 people sickened remain hospitalized including an 11-year-old boy with kidney damage. According to New Jersey’s Health Commissioner the latest case of e. coli sickening was reported on November 29.

If you have concerns about the outbreak you can call Taco Bell at 800 822 6235.
