  • 35 sick from E. Coli outbreak traced to romaine lettuce

The recall is in response to a CDC notice on romaine lettuce sourced by a supply partner from the Yuma, Arizona growing region.

In the past two weeks, 35 people in the US have become ill and one person in the USA has died in the multi-state outbreak, according to Consumer Reports.

Last year, an outbreak of 17 E. coli infections were reported in 13 states across the United States, all of which occurred from November 15, 2017 through December 8, 2017.

The outbreak has been caused by romaine lettuce grown in Arizona and sold in at least 11 states, including Pennsylvania where the most cases have been confirmed at nine.

"A packaged romaine lettuce that's chopped, I'd recommend that you either take it back to the store or throw it out, do not consume it", Phillips said.

The cases have been reported in Missoula, Flathead, Lincoln and Ravalli counties.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration indicated a multi-state outbreak of E. coli O157 is likely associated with chopped romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Ariz., growing region. Ill people range in age from 12 to 84 years, with a median age of 29.

The CDC on Friday advised consumers anywhere in the United States not to eat and throw away any store-bought chopped romaine lettuce at home, including salads and salad mixes containing chopped romaine lettuce. Most people with a E. coli O157 infection start feeling sick 3 to 4 days after eating or drinking something that contains the bacteria. The CDC reports 69 percent of those infected are women, and that 22 have been hospitalized and three have suffered from a type of kidney failure.

The evidence which was collected after the epidemiologic indicate that the chopped romaine lettuce is the main source of this outbreak.

CDC urged people to check the origin of the romaine lettuce before buying it at a grocery store or ordering it at a restaurant.

Symptoms include bloody diarrhea, decreased urination or presence of blood in the urine, seizures, fatigue, bleeding from the nose and mouth, pallor, abdominal pain, vomiting, swelling, high blood pressure, and fever.
