  • Sodexo reassures Univ. that its romaine lettuce is unaffected by E. coli outbreak

Any romaine lettuce being sold now is nearly certainly not from the Yuma, Arizona region and so unlikely to carry the E. coli bacteria that's been making people sick, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.

"It is unlikely that any romaine lettuce from the Yuma growing region is still available in stores or restaurants due to its 21-day shelf life", the Centers for Disease Control said Wednesday.

The FDA and the CDC used new genome sequencing technology to link infections to the same potent strain of E.coli that was previously reported. The current outbreak has been traced to the Yuma, Ariz. growing region, the source of virtually all lettuce sold in the USA during the winter months.

It might be safe to eat romaine lettuce again.

The CDC said three more states - Iowa, Nebraska and OR - have been hit by the outbreak, bringing the total number of affected states to 32. "The most recent illnesses reported to CDC started when romaine lettuce from the Yuma growing region was likely still available in stores, restaurants, and in peoples' homes", the CDC said.

Genetic testing shows that the E. coli strain involved in the outbreak produces a specific type of "Shiga toxin" that causes more severe illness, according to Matthew Wise, the CDC deputy branch chief for outbreak response. Symptoms, which begin about three to four days after consuming the bacteria, can include watery or bloody diarrhea, fever, abdominal cramps, nausea and vomiting, according to the CDC. Of the 157 people who were ill that the CDC has information on, 75 have been hospitalized and 20 have developed hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), the form of kidney failure that can be fatal.

Twenty people have been sickened in Pennsylvania and two people were reported sick in CT. California, which has the only reported death linked to this outbreak, has reported the highest number of cases with 39.
