Coli Warning To All Romaine Lettuce

Coli Warning To All Romaine Lettuce

A previous consumer alert from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding chopped romaine lettuce products has been extended to include all romaine lettuce products.

The E coli break out has contaminated a total amount of 53 individuals within 16 states, authorities pointed out. If you do not know if the lettuce is romaine, do not eat it and throw it away.

Evidently, investigations revealed that the people who fell ill also got their sickness from eating romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona growing region, just like the others who fell ill. So far, no common grower, brand, distributor, or supplier has been identified as the specific source of the outbreak.

Illnesses started on dates ranging from March 13 to April 6 and affected people 10 to 85 years old, the CDC reported Wednesday. An earlier warning did not include whole heads or hearts; the latest warning covers everything. People should also wash their hands after cleaning lettuce.

At that time, ill people were not reporting whole heads or hearts of romaine.

State and local health officials are continuing to interview sick people to ask about the foods they ate and other exposures before they became ill.
