Romaine lettuce may be source of E. coli outbreak

05 January 2018, 01:29 | Rodolfo Wallace

"Canadian health authorities identified romaine lettuce as the source of the outbreak in Canada, and are advising people in the country's eastern provinces to consider eating other types of salad greens until further notice", it said in a report published this week.

Rogers said it's best to assume that any romaine lettuce may be contaminated, even if it's sold in bags and packages.

One person has died and five people have been hospitalized of the cases occurring in California, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Vermont and Washington, according to the CDC. Total E. coli outbreaks in the USA are at 17 since the end of November.

The consumer advocacy group is now calling on the Food and Drug Administration and CDC to do more to warn the public about the dangers of the outbreak.

- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating a multi-state outbreak of E. coli infections.

"Because we have not identified a source of the infections, CDC is unable to recommend whether USA residents should avoid a particular food".

"Based on the investigation findings to date, exposure to romaine lettuce has been identified as the source of the outbreak, but the cause of contamination has not been identified", they wrote. Symptoms can appear anywhere from one to 10 days after eating the food, and the CDC recommends seeing a doctor if you have a high fever, bloody stool, or severe vomiting, or if diarrhea lasts longer than three days.
