CDC ALERT – 35 Reported Cases Of E. Coli Linked To Romaine Lettuce

"Consumers anywhere in the United States who have store-bought chopped romaine lettuce at home, including salads and salad mixes containing chopped romaine lettuce, should not eat it and should throw it away, even if some of it was eaten and no one has gotten sick", the CDC said in a statement.

The Centers for Disease Control says a multistate E. coli outbreak that has sickened almost three dozen people is linked to lettuce grown in Arizona.

The three people that have been hospitalized with E. Coli in this outbreak have developed a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome, the CDC said. No deaths have been reported.

Lab tests have confirmed that three cases of E. coli O157 illnesses in Montana are linked “to a multi-state outbreak, and four more are suspected and further testing is pending, ” the news release states.

Officials also ask consumers to confirm the source of chopped romaine lettuce, and not to purchase or eat any if the source can not be confirmed.

Symptoms include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting. Of those, 69 percent were female.

The source of the e. Coli has been identified as from a growing area in Yuma, Arizona, but no common grower or supplier has been identified and that's why no official recall has been issued. They expect to have lettuce again by the end of the week.
