CDC warns - Do not eat romaine lettuce as E. coli illness spreads

The CDC reports its investigation points to chopped romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona region as the potential culprit. Fortunately nobody has died, but almost 70 percent of those infected have been hospitalized with a nasty toxin-producing strain of E. coli, and several have developed kidney failure.

No recall has been issued as of Thursday because the CDC has been unable to identify a specific grower, supplier, distributor or brand responsible for the contaminated lettuce. As a result, they caution that all store-bought romaine lettuce, including salad mixes containing romaine, should not be eaten.

"Before purchasing romaine lettuce at a grocery store or eating it at a restaurant, confirm with the store or restaurant that is not chopped romaine lettuce from the Yuma Arizona growing region". According to Consumer Reports, this action comes after federal food safety warnings about contaminated chopped romaine lettuce. The agency is also asking retailers and restaurants not to sell or serve romaine lettuce, and most of those who were sickened reported eating chopped lettuce at restaurants. The restaurants reported using bagged, chopped romaine lettuce to make salads.
