How can I tell if lettuce is spoiled?

Look for signs of deterioration in the product, such as wilted leaves or excessive browning. In extreme cases, the lettuce will assume a slimy appearance or texture. If the lettuce is packaged, also look for swelling or moistness in the bag. Moisture may support mold growth.
