Tainted romaine lettuce consisting of E coli from Arizona

Tainted romaine lettuce consisting of E coli from Arizona

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a new consumer advisory: do not buy or eat romaine lettuce, unless you can confirm that it does not come from Yuma, AZ.

United States authorities have urged customers to stay clear of romaine lettuce, pre warning that an E coli break out has afflicted hundreds within numerous states.

The CDC had originally traced the outbreak - which has sickened at least 53 people across 16 states - specifically to chopped romaine lettuce grown in the Yuma, Ariz., region.

The new update is based on newly reported illnesses in Alaska, where individuals had eaten whole romaine lettuce.

No common grower, supplier, distributor or brand has been identified in the outbreak, CDC officials stated in reports.

HUDS, however, sources its lettuce from Salinas, Calif., a region unaffected by E. coli, Martin said. It is now advising people throw away whole heads of romaine in addition to chopped romaine.

"Harvard University Dining Services romaine lettuce is NOT affected by the current recall". These symptoms include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting.

Other E. coli cases included in the outbreak have occurred in Arizona, California, Connecticut, Idaho, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New York, Ohio, Virginia and Washington, according to the CDC.

As of Wednesday, the hospitalization rate for this outbreak was about 58 percent, much higher than the 30 percent normally associated with infections involving E. coli O157: H7, according to a CDC update sent to clinicians on Thursday. The condition requires hospitalization and although most patients will recover, some may experience permanent kidney damage or die. But a small number, including the strain in this outbreak, produce a toxin called Shiga that can cause serious illness or death in people.
