  • 35 sick from E. Coli outbreak traced to romaine lettuce

For the time being no common grower, supplier, brand or distributor has been identified for this outbreak.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports the outbreak spiked last week on April 10 when it added 18 people from nine states to the infected list.

Laura Gieraltowski, Ph.D., M.P.H., who leads the Foodborne Outbreak Response Team at the CDC, predicts there will be more reports of illness in the days and weeks ahead.

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

If you've bought lettuce lately throw it out, chances are it will make you sick.

Officials said laboratory testing confirms three cases are linked to a multi-state outbreak and four more are suspected while further testing is pending.

Pacers conquer Cavaliers behind Oladipo, poise under pressure
While the Cavaliers will undoubtedly play better in Game 2, the fact remains that the Pacers have had their number this season. Those Pacers , though, didn't have Oladipo or the balance of this Indy squad, which may lack experience but not confidence.

Health officials have confirmed E. coli cases in Missoula, Flathead, and Ravalli counties, including three hospitalizations.

The Centers for Disease Control says a multistate E. coli outbreak that has sickened almost three dozen people is linked to lettuce grown in Arizona. Most people get better within 5 to 7 days.

Consumers anywhere in the US 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.

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. The majority of E. Coli cases — 69 percent — occurred in women, although people of both genders ages 12 to 84 years have been affected by the outbreak. Symptoms include bloody diarrhea, severe stomach cramps and vomiting.

Consumer Reports said it would be hard for buyers to tell where the romaine was grown, which is why they are saying consumers should avoid romaine altogether until the threat passes.

Those who want to purchase romaine salad at grocery stores should first confirm that it was not grown in Yuma, Arizona, according to the CDC.
