E. Coli is no laughing matter. The romaine lettuce in 23 states has been recalled because of the deadly virus that has nearly claimed the lives of 3 people.

The Ohio State University, University of Michigan and Daemen College in Amherst, N.Y., are among those affected, according to the states’ local health departments.
