E. coli outbreak linked to Taco Bell green onions

The green onions suspected in the E. coli outbreak linked to Taco Bell came from a southern California grower, Ready Pac. 

No problems have been reported with Taco Bell restaurants in Washington state, but green onions are off the menu at every Taco Bell restaurant in the country including in the Yakima Valley. The green onions may be the culprit for the E. coli outbreak that's sickened nearly four dozen people in three states. Yakima County health district says the problem is becoming more common in agricultural areas that use manure as fertilizer and use a watering system that could come in contact with animals.
