Throw away romaine lettuce, says Illinois Health Department

Throw away romaine lettuce, says Illinois Health Department

Fresh Foods Manufacturing is recalling there "Great to Go by Market District" following an E. coli outbreak that has spread to several states and sickened dozens of people.

It's now recommending that you don't eat, serve or sell ANY romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona region. The warning covers all types of romaine lettuce and lettuce products from the Yuma, Arizona, growing region. No one has died but 31 have been hospitalized and five have developed a severe complication of E. coli infection called hemolytic uremic syndrome.

Symptoms of E. coli infection include diarrhea, severe stomach cramps and vomiting. The agency previously had advised consumers to avoid chopped romaine, salads and salad mixes that contained the lettuce. So far, no common grower, brand, distributor, or supplier has been identified as the specific source of the outbreak. Ask the waiter if the romaine lettuce is coming from the Yuma area. Eight inmates in the prison were infected after eating whole romaine lettuce contaminated by the bacteria, according to information from the CDC and Alaska's Department of Health and Social Services.

The acquittal of the accused by the court in the Mecca Masjid blast case for lack of evidence has exposed Congress' lies, he said. The reactions came in the aftermath of an NIA court in Hyderabad acquitting all five accused in the Mecca Masjid blasts case.

"Unless the way to obtain the item is understood, consumers anywhere in the United States that possess any storebought romaine lettuce at home if not try to eat it should throw away it, even though any of it was eaten daily and no one has ever gotten sick", officials alert.

A newly reported outbreak of E. coli OH157:H7 in the Anvil Mountain Correctional Center in Nome, Alaska, prompted the CDC to broaden its recommendations to consumers.

Most people recover within 1 week. If you're not one of those people, and you don't feel like interrogating your local grocer to find out exactly where the salad mixes on the shelves were grown, it's probably best to just avoid romaine entirely, at least until this whole mess gets cleared up.

Another Power Outage Leaves Most Puerto Ricans In the Dark
Officials said restoring power to hospitals, airports, banking centers and water pumping systems was their priority. More than 1.4 million Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority's (PREPA) customers lost electrical power and by 8 p.m.

This investigation is ongoing, and CDC will provide updates when more information is available.

California is 1 of 16 states involved in the E. coli outbreak. You can also write down what you ate in the week before you started to get sick and talk to public health investigators if they have questions about your illness. Almost all - 41 of 43 - said they had eaten romaine lettuce in the week before they were interviews.

Giants releasing Brandon Marshall
Marshall quickly knocked the idea of Bryant joining Big Blue, writing "sorry baby bro no room" on Instagram. Offensive line, cornerback, edge rusher, and running back all remain priorities after Marshall's release.
