Got Romaine Lettuce in the Fridge? 🥗

Well, bummer. If you’ve recently purchased chopped romaine lettuce, you may want to toss it in the trash. 😔

In addition to the salmonella egg recall, the FDA and CDC are now investigating a multi-state outbreak of E. Coli illnesses likely linked to chopped romaine lettuce sourced in Yuma, Arizona.

There are currently 35 people in 11 states who have become ill: Connecticut (2), Idaho (8), Illinois (1), Michigan (1), Missouri (1), New Jersey (7), New York (2), Ohio (2), Pennsylvania (9), Virginia (1), and Washington (1). These people reported becoming ill during March 22nd and March 31st, 2018.

Before buying romaine lettuce at ANY store, health officials recommend that consumers ask retailers where their romaine lettuce was sourced from. Do not eat or buy it if it’s from Yuma, Arizona – OR if the retailer is unsure. Also, if you have already purchased products containing chopped romaine lettuce, including bagged salads, salad mixes, or prepared salads – be sure to throw them away.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
