E Coli Outbreak Empties Romaine Lettuce off Tri-City Shelves

Although none of the confirmed E. coli cases have yet been linked to Fresh Foods, the company is concerned that its romaine supplier may have been involved in the outbreak. The CDC reports 69 percent of those infected are women, and that 22 have been hospitalized and three have suffered from a type of kidney failure.

Illnesses that occurred after March 27, 2018, might not yet be reported due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill with E. coli and when the illness is reported. "This takes an average of two to three weeks".

A 1996 large E. coli O157 outbreak sickened 70 who were mostly children.

Epidemiologic evidence collected to date indicates that chopped romaine lettuce is the likely source of this outbreak.

States that have reported people infected with the E. coli strain include Washington, Idaho, Missouri, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and MI. As the number of people being infected by the disease has been increasing, health officials raised concerns about the consumption of the vegetable as no particular brand of lettuce has been identified so far. This percentage is significantly higher than results from a survey [787 KB] of healthy people in which 46% reported eating romaine lettuce in the week before they were interviewed.

One of those people added to the infected list in the CDC's most recent update is a MI resident. At this time, ill people are not reporting whole heads or hearts of romaine. That's all the information the US agency gives in that regard as it adds, "no common grower, supplier, distributor, or brand has been identified".

Consumers anywhere in the USA who have store-bought chopped romaine lettuce, including salads and salad mixes, should not eat it and throw it away - even if you have eaten some of it already.

Chopped romaine lettuce from Yuma, Arizona, was possibly linked to the current E. coli outbreak in several states in the country, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in a warning Sunday.

CDC investigators don't believe this outbreak is connected to the one that occurred late a year ago in the United States and Canada, although it is the same potentially deadly strain, E.coli O157:H7.
