Do not eat any romaine lettuce from Yuma, AZ — CDC warns

Romaine lettuce is seen in a file

The multistate E. coli outbreak warning issued from the Center for Disease and Prevention Control (CDC) just received an important update.

That means any romaine lettuce, including chopped romaine, salad mixes containing romaine, whole heads and hearts. Before purchasing romaine lettuce at a grocery store or eating it at a restaurant, consumers should confirm with the store or restaurant that it is not romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona growing region. There are no reported deaths as of Friday at 4 p.m. EDT.

Although the exact source hasn't been identified, federal health officials have said information indicates the contaminated lettuce was grown in the Yuma, Ariz., area.

Consumers as well as restaurants and retailers are advised to throw away any lettuce if they can't confirm where it's from.

Stay away from romaine lettuce.

One case has been found in IL so far.

On Friday, they extended their alert about E. Coli contamination in romaine lettuce from the region to cover the entire United States.

Activists worry United States airstrikes won't deter Assad: 'Mission not accomplished'
An inspection by the team of experts can definitely prove whether a chemical weapon has been used, but not who used it. The inspectors arrived in Damascus on the day of the Western strikes but had not been allowed to enter Douma .

The 16 states included in the outbreak are: California, Washington, Alaska, Montana, Idaho, Arizona, Missouri, Louisiana, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

If you have lettuce in your house and you're not absolutely sure it didn't come from the Yuma area, throw it away-even if no one has gotten sick.

The CDC says that no common grower, supplier, distributor, or brand still has been identified.

Individual states, the CDC and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are investigating the outbreak.

Kidney failure can occur, typically in children under 5 or seniors over 65. Five of them developed a type of kidney failure associated with an E. coli illness called hemolytic uremic syndrome, which can be life-threatening.

William Marler, a Seattle personal injury lawyer who specializes in food-borne illnesses, said a married couple in Flathead County are among the 25 people he is representing. This is the first E. coli outbreak of 2018.

Symptoms of E. coli infection include diarrhea, severe stomach cramps and vomiting.
