Health officials urge people to avoid romaine lettuce amid E. coli outbreak

Health officials are urging that all romaine lettuce should be thrown away amid a multistate outbreak of a E. coli bacteria

It is now advising people throw away whole heads of romaine in addition to chopped romaine.

Restaurants and retailers have also been urged to stop selling this type of lettuce.

32 people from 11 states have been infected, but Kentucky has yet to report a case. No deaths have been reported, according to the CDC.

The contaminated lettuce is from the Yuma, Arizona region. In last year's outbreak, 25 people across 15 states became sick after eating romaine lettuce with that bacterial strain.

But officials said Tuesday that this new outbreak is a different strain of E. coli than the spring outbreak.

Particularly, the alternative proposals on the issue to the Irish-Northern Irish border would not solve the Problem, said May.

The investigation into the illnesses, which all started on dates between October 8 and October 31, indicates that romaine lettuce is likely the outbreak's source.

For this outbreak investigation, the average interval between when a person becomes ill and when the illness is reported to CDC is 20 days.

That outbreak investigation was declared closed in February 2018 after nearly two months during which no illnesses were reported and various romaine lettuce samples tested negative for E. coli.

Additionally, you should make sure to wash and sanitize drawers or shelves in refrigerators where romaine was stored.

If you have symptoms of an E. coli infection, CDC officials say you should write down what you ate before you got sick and contact your healthcare provider. One of those cases involved hemolytic-uremic syndrome, which is a severe case of E.coli. Pregnant women, those with weakened immune systems, young children and older adults are the demographics who are most at risk for developing serious complications due to E. coli-related illness.
