CDC reports E.Coli infections linked to lettuce distributed from Yuma

And, before purchasing romaine lettuce at a grocery store or at a restaurant, they warn people to make sure it did not come from the Yuma, Arizona, growing region.

The CDC says individuals in the U.S. who have a chopped romaine lettuce product, such as a salad mix containing the leaves, should not eat it and instead throw it away.

Twenty-two people have been hospitalized, three of whom had hemolytic uremic syndrome - a type of kidney failure that one can recover from.

So far, the CDC reports 17 people have been affected in Washington, Idaho, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and CT.

The size of the outbreak grew from 17 people in seven states on April 9, to the current count of 35 confirmed cases in 11 states as of April 13.

Identifying a common source for E. coli infections is particularly challenging because individuals could potentially eat several meals spanning several places before experiencing symptoms and falling ill.

CDC suggests the outbreak is not over with illnesses after March 27, 2018, not yet included in the count.

The people infected so far range in age from 12 to 84 years old.

The Department of Health also has a website: www.nj.gov/health/cd/topics/ecoli.shtml that contains more information on E. coli, including frequently asked questions. The chopped romaine lettuce in question was consumed at restaurants and in private homes.

"If you can not confirm the source of the lettuce, do not buy or eat it", the C.D.C. said in a statement.

Investigators are trying to determine the source of chopped romaine lettuce supplied to restaurant locations where ill people ate.

If you or a loved one have been sickened with an E. coli O157:H7 infection or HUS after eating pre-chopped romaine lettuce, contact our experienced attorneys for help at 1-888-377-8900. Most people infected with E. coli develop diarrhea (often bloody), severe stomach cramps, and vomiting.

Downes said the Department of Public Health is assisting the CDC in their investigation. Restaurants and retailers are not now advised to avoid serving or selling any particular food.
