The CDC Has Expanded Its E. Coli Warning To All Romaine Lettuce

The CDC Has Expanded Its E. Coli Warning To All Romaine Lettuce

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention added 31 people to its tally of victims in the outbreak.

Product labels often do not identify growing regions, so throw out any romaine lettuce if you're uncertain about where it was grown.

No grower, packer or distributor has been implicated thus far, the agency said.

According to AZCentral, the CDC on Wednesday was able to confirm 24 new cases of E. coli infections in 10 states, all related to the current national outbreak.

Three more states have reported ill people: Colorado, Georgia, and South Dakota., bringing the total states to 19.

The Alaska cases occurred among prisoners at a Nome correctional facility who had eaten whole-leaf romaine - previously, illnesses had been associated with chopped, bagged romaine.

"In response to the CDC warning, Campus Dining reviewed the sourcing of its romaine lettuce and determined it is not from the affected region", said acting University spokesman Michael Hotchkiss.

Officials say romaine lettuce in stores and restaurants now is likely from California and not from the region where the tainted lettuce orginated. The agency expanded its warning from just chopped romaine to any and all forms of the lettuce - whole romaine, romaine in mixed salads, etc.

To be on the safe side, Clark says, avoid eating salads or anything that contain romaine lettuce.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health is reminding residents to throw out any romaine lettuce that may be linked to a recent E.coli outbreak.

The illnesses have been identified as linked to a particularly virulent strain of E. coli O157:H7.

Although there have not been any confirmed cases of E. Coli in Indiana, Wenig wasn't taking any chances. Attorney Fred Pritzker and his team recently won $7.5 million in a lawsuit for a young client whose kidneys failed because he developed hemolytic uremic syndrome after an E. coli infection.

People usually get sick from colitoxin gastroenteritis 2-8 days (average of 3-4 days) after swallowing the germ.

Symptoms of E. coliO157 include diarrhea (sometimes bloody) and abdominal pain.

Most people recover within a week, but some illnesses can last longer and be more severe.

"We checked with the vendors, and we found that the lettuce was not contaminated", a Mathey and Rockefeller College dining hall manager who asked to remain anonymous commented.
