    Yes, lettuce can become contaminated with Salmonella bacteria. This can happen if the lettuce comes into contact with water, soil, or other substances that contain Salmonella. Contamination can occur at various stages of production, including during growing, harvesting, processing, or handling. Consuming contaminated lettuce can lead to Salmonella infection, causing symptoms such as diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps. It’s important to wash lettuce thoroughly before eating it to reduce the risk of foodborne illness.
