One Person Dies/Romaine Lettuce E-Coli Outbreak

One Person Dies/Romaine Lettuce E-Coli Outbreak

The outbreak encompasses basically all forms of romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona growing region. 52 people have been hospitalised and 14 of them with kidney failure among the sickened people. There are now 121 reported illnesses from 25 states, and in addition to the one death, there have been 52 hospitalizations and 14 kidney failures.

However, they have not determined when the contamination took place nor have they been able to identify the source of the other outbreaks in the country.Most of the cases reported have come from California, Pennsylvania and Idaho.

"Do not eat or buy romaine lettuce unless you can confirm it is not from the Yuma, Arizona growing region", the CDC advises.

A recent Escherichia coli outbreak connected to romaine lettuce that has spread across 25 states is now linked to one death in California, according to a CDC report released May 2.

He also insinuated that Tester himself could be the target of allegations: "I know things about Tester that I could say, too". Clearly, Jackson should have been vetted, just as any presidential nominee should head to Capitol Hill.


The outbreak is the largest in the United States since 2006, when spinach tainted with a similar strain of E. coli sickened more than 200 people.

This strain of E. coli produces a toxin that causes vomiting and diarrhea and potentially other severe symptoms, including in some cases kidney failure.

Officials still have not identified the source of the outbreak. "I mean, candidly, that's ridiculous", Marler said. There were 24 reported cases in California, officials there said. The newest update includes illnesses starting as recently as April 21. The same goes for restaurants, and the caution applies to all romaine-chopped, whole, baby, organic, or snippets in mixes. Lettuce has a shelf life of only a couple of weeks at most, and any romaine lettuce on sale in stores today is likely not from Yuma and is not implicated in this outbreak.

"This is a higher hospitalization rate than usual for E. coli O157:H7 infections, which is usually around 30%".
