Chopped romaine lettuce linked to E. coli outbreak

  • Giant Eagle is recalling multiple items prepared with romaine lettuce after potential E. coli contamination

The CDC reports that this investigation remains active, and that it will provide an update when it can.

Thirty-five people in 11 states are sick in this E. coli O157:H7 HUS outbreak.

The advice is based on interviews with 28 of the ill individuals in which 93% of them reported consuming romaine lettuce within the week they began feeling sick.

Most people can recover within a week but there is risk of more severe illnesses in young children below 5 years old, older adults and those who have weakened immune system.

Consumers anywhere in the USA who have store-bought chopped romaine lettuce, including salads and salad mixes, should not eat it and throw it away - even if you have eaten some of it already. That's all the information the US agency gives in that regard as it adds, "no common grower, supplier, distributor, or brand has been identified". But there have been a few recalls issued in connection with this matter.

One Pennsylvania company, Fresh Foods Manufacturing, announced on Saturday a voluntary recall of 8,757 pounds of retail salad products. The DNA fingerprint of the bacteria in that outbreak is different.

However, it was clear that he was still a bit shaken up and head coach Quin Snyder chose to pull him from the game once again. Mitchell was visibly confused on the bench and, with the help of some teammates, lobbied to re-enter the game.


Any lettuce that came from that area (and there's a LOT!) has been pulled from shelves, people are urged to dispose of any recently purchased from the store that originated in that region.

The current outbreak is not related to a recent multistate outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 infections linked to leafy greens.

As of Friday, no deaths were reported in the latest outbreak but three of those sickened developed a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome, the CDC reported.

Symptoms include bloody diarrhea, decreased urination or presence of blood in the urine, seizures, fatigue, bleeding from the nose and mouth, pallor, abdominal pain, vomiting, swelling, high blood pressure, and fever. Anyone with these symptoms should see a doctor immediately.

The CDC tracked the infections across eleven states to romaine lettuce from Yuma, Arizona, but no brand or grower has been identified, according to the CDC. If it is from Yuma, Arizona, or the retailer doesn't know, do not buy it and do not eat it.

Epidemiologic evidence collected to date indicates that chopped romaine lettuce is the likely source of this outbreak.
