CDC: Romaine lettuce finally in the clear

Sodexo reassures Univ. that its romaine lettuce is unaffected by E. coli outbreak

The news and stories that matter, delivered weekday mornings.

Though the romaine lettuce E. coli outbreak sickened more people in more states over the last week, the true news in Wednesday's CDC update concerns the lettuce. "Once it was confirmed that the romaine we serve did not come from Yuma, Arizona, we deemed it to be safe for consumption". The most recent illnesses reported to CDC started when romaine lettuce from the Yuma growing region was likely still available in stores, restaurants, and in peoples' homes. 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.

The CDC added that the last date of harvest for the romaine lettuce from the Yuma growing region was April 16th.

The CDC has stopped advising consumers to throw away romaine lettuce if they can't confirm where it's from.

The person could have consumed the romaine lettuce at home, at a local restaurant or somewhere outside the area, Rooney said. And 75 people have been sick enough to need hospitalization. As of May 15, the CDC was reporting three people were ill from the outbreak in Colorado.

The person became ill about three weeks ago and has recovered, said Phil Rooney, a spokesman for the Douglas County Health Department.

The CDC estimates that foodborne illnesses affect 47.8 million people in the USA every year, putting 127,000 into the hospital and killing more than 3,000.
