Do Not Eat Any Romaine Lettuce — CDC Outbreak Alert

The Centers for Disease Control warns consumers to throw out chopped romaine lettuce following E. coli outbreak this month

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 32 people have become ill from a strain of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli in 11 states from October 8 through October 31.

The warning includes all types of romaine lettuce and any salad mix that contains romaine lettuce.

No brand names have been identified and no recall was ordered.

CDC officials are working with the Food and Drug Administration and other officials to determine the source of the outbreak.

But now, they aren't taking chances: the CDC said anyone with romaine at home should throw it away - even if you're not sure it's romaine but suspect it might be.

Health officials in the United States and Canada on Tuesday told people to avoid eating romaine lettuce because of a new E. coli outbreak.

Symptoms of E. coli infection, which typically begin three to four days after the bacteria is ingested, include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting.

In the meantime, CDC officials say consumers should not eat any romaine lettuce, and retailers and restaurants should not serve any romaine lettuce.

Talk to your healthcare provider.

This outbreak is not related to the previous 2018 E. coli infections linked to romaine lettuce.

Report your illness to the health department.

This investigation is ongoing, and CDC will provide more information as it becomes available.

Assist public health investigators by answering questions about your illness.

The Public Health Agency of Canada has identified an additional 18 people who have become sick with the same strain of of E. coli in Ontario and Quebec.

Some studies have shown that administering antibiotics to patients with coliO157 infections might increase their risk of developing hemolytic uremic syndrome (a type of kidney failure), and the benefit of antibiotic treatment has not been clearly demonstrated. This year has been absolutely brutal for anyone who enjoys a good salad, with the CDC issuing alert after alert warning people not to eat lettuce grown from certain regions or purchased during certain time frames in specific areas.
