According to the latest statement from the CDC, numerous people affected fell ill two to three weeks ago, when the contaminated lettuce was still on shop shelves.

Twenty-five more people have taken ill since the last update from the agency on May 16, with 197 patients from 35 states now affected, the CDC said.

Romaine lettuce from the Yuma growing region in Arizona is thought to be the source of the latest E. coli outbreak.

That brings the total death count from the recent E. coli outbreak to five. At least 89 were hospitalized. It is unlikely that any romaine lettuce from the Yuma growing region is still available in people's homes, stores, or restaurants due to its 21-day shelf life.

Four more deaths were reported from Arkansas (1), Minnesota (2), and NY (1).

The first illnesses occurred in March, and the most recent began on May 12, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A total of 26 people have developed a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome.

Numerous new cases were people who became ill two to three weeks ago, when contaminated lettuce was still being sold.

"We are actively evaluating a number of theories about how romaine lettuce grown on multiple farms in the same growing region could have become contaminated around the same time", Dr. Scott Gottlieb and Dr. Stephen Ostroff wrote.

Symptoms of E. coli vary, but include may include stomach cramps, fevers, bloody diarrhea and vomiting among others.

Officials also noted that some of the individuals who became ill never actually consumed the contaminated lettuce but were in close contact with someone else who had done so.

This is the largest outbreak of its kind since a deadly E.coli outbreak in 2006 that was linked to spinach, CNN reported.
