E. Coli Outbreak in Ontario, Quebec Linked to Romaine Lettuce

The health department is to investigate whether an outbreak of an E. coli affects Bermuda

"This advice includes all types or uses of romaine lettuce, such as whole heads of romaine, hearts of romaine, and bags and boxes of precut lettuce and salad mixes that contain romaine, including baby romaine, spring mix, and Caesar salad", the CDC said, noting that it had not been able to pinpoint precisely where the suspect leaves had originated.

He suspects the USA has gone a step further than Canada in part because US authorities reported 32 cases of E. coli, 13 of which involved a person who was hospitalized.

"Out of concern for the health of employees and customers, Sobeys Inc. temporarily stopped the sale of all Romaine lettuce products across its national store network until further notice", reads a press release from Sobeys. WGS performed on E. coli bacteria from ill people in this outbreak showed that the strains were closely related genetically.

Illnesses started on dates ranging from October 8, 2018 to October 31, 2018. It has not caused any deaths yet, but did send 13 people to the hospital.

Individuals who became ill are between 5 and 93 years of age. Of those, one patient developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning people to avoid eating the lettuce. This percentage is significantly higher than results from a survey [PDF - 787 KB] of healthy people in which 47% reported eating romaine lettuce in the week before they were interviewed.

US health officials are warning people to stay away from romaine as an investigation into the link between the lettuce and an E. coli outbreak takes place.

The CDC also told consumers to throw away any romaine they may already have bought, even if some of it was eaten and no one has gotten sick. At this time, no common grower, supplier, distributor, or brand of romaine lettuce has been identified.
