Metro health officials confirm E. coli case linked to lettuce

Sodexo reassures Univ. that its romaine lettuce is unaffected by E. coli outbreak What you need to know about the E. coli outbreak on romaine lettuce
Ben Pena | 17 May, 2018, 05:10

Health officials said Wednesday that it is "unlikely" that any romaine lettuce grown in Yuma is still available as more E. coli cases are being reported nationwide. That was the message Wednesday from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and if not exactly a thundering signal of "all clear", it's pretty close.

Now three more states have reported ill people: Iowa, Nebraska, and OR, the CDC said.

But the last shipments of romaine lettuce from Yuma were harvested on April 16, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

You might be seeing romaine lettuce back on the store shelves.

Most of the illnesses in the outbreak are not linked to the romaine lettuce grown at that farm. This means that any romaine lettuce from the region that found its way to stores or restaurants is likely now past its 21-day shelf life.

One change they would like to do is sending JP Duminy up the order as he is playing at number 8, which is a complete waste. After a brilliant batting display, Mumbai bowlers managed to restrict Punjab to 183/5 to bag two crucial points.

Unless you know where the lettuce came from, consumers anywhere in the US who have any store-bought romaine lettuce at home should not eat it and should throw it away.

As of May 15, 172 people in 32 states had been sickened in the outbreak, an increase of 23 people and three states since the last update a week earlier. The strain linked to chopped romaine lettuce is a Shiga toxin-producing E. coli, which can cause severe stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting, the CDC said. One death has been reported.

The FDA said it will focus on identifying the factors that led to lettuce being contaminated across multiple supply chains. The agency is still investigating dozens of other farms to find the source of that E. Coli outbreak.
