Answer ( 1 )


    Salmonella contamination in lettuce usually occurs when the lettuce comes into contact with contaminated water, soil, or animal feces during the growing or harvesting process. This can happen if lettuce is irrigated with contaminated water or if it comes into contact with contaminated soil or animal waste. Additionally, if lettuce is washed or processed with contaminated water or equipment, it can also become contaminated with Salmonella. Improper handling and storage of lettuce can further contribute to the spread of Salmonella. Therefore, it’s essential to follow good agricultural and food safety practices to minimize the risk of Salmonella contamination in lettuce.
