One E.coli case confirmed in MI linked to romaine lettuce

One E.coli case confirmed in MI linked to romaine lettuce

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommended that people not eat bagged and chopped romaine lettuce after a possible E. coli contamination.

Consumers who purchased romaine lettuce at a grocery store or eat the same at any restaurant should confirm that it is not the chopped romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona growing region.

The agency has not identified a common grower, supplier, distributor or brand. "If you or someone from your family recently ate store-bought chopped romaine lettuce and are experiencing symptoms, please seek medical treatment immediately".

Consumer Reports said it would be hard for buyers to tell where the romaine was grown, which is why they are saying consumers should avoid romaine altogether until the threat passes. Twenty-two ill people have been hospitalized, including three people who developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure. The restaurants reported using bagged, chopped romaine lettuce to make salads.

"Nearly all of the romaine lettuce now being harvested and shipped throughout the United States is from California growing areas, and is not implicated in the outbreak", the statement said.

One of those people added to the infected list in the CDC's most recent update is a MI resident. Other kinds of E. coli cause urinary tract infections, respiratory illness and pneumonia. Three cases in Montana are confirmed to be linked by laboratory testing to a multi-state outbreak and four more are suspected and further testing is pending. The majority of E. Coli cases — 69 percent — occurred in women, although people of both genders ages 12 to 84 years have been affected by the outbreak. While E. Coli is most commonly associated with food poisoning, the bacteria can also result in pneumonia, respiratory problems and urinary tract infections.
