Consumers are once again being advised to stay away from Romaine lettuce due to a multi-state outbreak of E. Coli.
The outbreak has sickened at least 32 people from 11 states, including 13 who needed to be hospitalized.
The most recent illness onset in the US among these cases was October 31, 2018.
Consumers and retailers should throw away romaine lettuce even if some of it has been consumed and no one has gotten sick. Their investigation is ongoing, and they will provide more information when it becomes available.
The Public Health Agency of Canada has identified an additional 18 people who have become sick with the same strain of of E. coli in Ontario and Quebec.
This applies to all types of romaine lettuce, including hearts of romaine and prepackaged salad mixes. And after you do that, be sure to wash and sanitize the crisper drawer or fridge shelf the lettuce touched. Toss it. In fact, the alert includes advice on how to clean your refrigerator if romaine has been inside it recently.
CDC is advising that consumers do not eat any romaine lettuce because no common grower, supplier, distributor, or brand of romaine lettuce has been identified. Restaurants should not serve it, stores should not sell it, and people should not buy it, no matter where or when the lettuce was grown. If there is fever, it is usually not very high (less than 101 degrees Fahrenheit/less than 38.5 degrees Celsius).
Most E. coli bacteria are not harmful, but some produce toxins that can cause severe illness.
Most people get better within 5-7 days.
