    Lettuce contaminated with pathogens have sickened and killed people. But the FDA has shelved Obama-era plans to test the culprit: farms’ irrigation water.

    William Whitt suffered violent diarrhea for days. But once he began vomiting blood, he knew it was time to rush to the hospital. His body swelled up so much that his wife thought he looked like the Michelin Man, and on the inside, his intestines were inflamed and bleeding....
    Whitt and his family were baffled: How could a healthy 37-year-old suddenly get so sick? While he was fighting for his life, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention quizzed Whitt, seeking information about what had sickened him.

    Actually, if the plants are non-edible ornamental plants, they might have soil/water cleansing capability. https://www.resilience.org/stories/2...aminated-soil/

    Even edible plants such as certain mushrooms are used as soil cleansers, but should not be eaten if used as such.

    Youlie, the article is talking about thousands of acres that require watering on a massive scale. Sometimes irrigation water from ditches is used, which is open to contamination — as opposed to well water, from deep underground.
