This is the first death associated with the outbreak, which has now sickened 121 people from 25 states and sent at least 52 people to the hospital, according to the CDC.
Last month, USA authorities took the unusual step of telling people to throw out any romaine lettuce they had, and not eat it unless they were sure it was not from the Yuma, Arizona area which grows most of the romaine lettuce sold in the country during winter.
The death was reported in California, but state and federal health officials did not provide any other details.
The number of people hospitalized because of the tainted romaine is higher than usual.

They have managed to identify one farm linked to the lettuce - a distributor of whole heads of romaine that sickened people at a correctional facility in Alaska. As a result, the CDC has reissued their ban on romaine lettuce, so don't eat any unless you are certain it did not come from that area.
California now leads the nation with 24 cases, followed by Pennsylvania with 20 and Idaho with 11.

The Food and Drug Administration said most people reported eating a salad at a restaurant, and romaine lettuce was the only common ingredient identified among the salads eaten.
