Do not eat romaine lettuce — Warning from CDC

Do not eat romaine lettuce — Warning from CDC

Although none of the confirmed E. coli cases have yet been linked to Fresh Foods, the company is concerned that its romaine supplier may have been involved in the outbreak.

Illnesses have been reported in CT (2), Idaho (8), IL (1), MI (1), Missouri (1), New Jersey (7), NY (2), OH (2), Pennsylvania (9), Virginia (1), and Washington (1).

State and local public health agencies in Montana are investigating several reports of E. coli O157 illnesses linked to chopped romaine lettuce sourced from the winter growing areas in Yuma, Arizona.

A multistate E. coli outbreak has sent at least 22 people to the hospital prompting health officials to advise consumers across the country to throw out any store-bought chopped romaine lettuce, including prepackaged salads and salad mixes.

According to the lawsuit, the salad Fraser ate at Panera Bread on March 20 included Freshway-supplied romaine lettuce from the Yuma region.

As of April 12, 2018, 35 people infected with the outbreak strain of E. coli O157:H7 have been reported from 11 states. Some people may have a low fever, less than 101 degrees Fahrenheit. However, illnesses can start anywhere from one to 10 days after exposure.

Fresh Food Manufacturing Co., based in Freedom, Pennsylvania, recalled 8,757 pounds of ready-to-eat salad after being notified by their lettuce supplier that it may be contaminated with E. Coli O157:H7, according to the USDA. Symptoms include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting. The earliest symptoms began on March 22.

According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 48 million Americans are sickened, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die each year because of food-related illnesses.

Lettuce from restaurants is suspected to be affected, as well as bagged and pre-chopped lettuce from stores.

Most people reported eating a salad at a restaurant, and romaine lettuce was the only common ingredient identified among the salads eaten. Read CDC's advice to consumers, restaurants, and retailers.

CDC urged people to check the origin of the romaine lettuce before buying it at a grocery store or ordering it at a restaurant. Attorney Fred Pritzker and his team recently won $7.5 million for young client whose kidneys failed because of hemolytic uremic syndrome after an E. coli O157:H7 infection.

Last year, an outbreak of 17 E. coli infections were reported in 13 states across the United States, all of which occurred from November 15, 2017 through December 8, 2017. "If you do not know if the lettuce is romaine, do not eat it and throw it away".

CDC also said the number of cases may increase "due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill with E. coli and when the illness is reported".
