More cases in E. coli outbreak

More cases in E. coli outbreak

The CDC believes the US and Canadian cases could be related, but isn't ready to issue a a specific warning about romaine.

"There appears to be an ongoing risk of E. coli infections associated with the consumption of romaine lettuce in Canada's eastern provinces", Canada said on December 28.

Public health agencies in both the United States and Canada are informing consumers that there are no concerns about consuming any particular food, while they continue their investigations into what caused this E. coli O157:H7 outbreak that began in November.

Consumer Reports say you should also stay away from romaine lettuce served in a cafeteria or restaurant.

Of those, one person died while 17 others were hospitalized. "Preliminary results show that the type of E. coli making people sick in both countries is closely related genetically, meaning the ill people are more likely to share a common source of infection".

The CDC has not definitively connected the outbreak to romaine.

Based on the investigation findings to date, the agency says exposure to romaine lettuce has been identified as the source of the outbreak, but the cause of contamination has not been determined.

Cases by state is as follows: California (4), CT (2), IL (1), IN (2), Maryland (3), MI (1), Nebraska (1), New Hampshire (2), New Jersey (1), NY (1), OH (1), Pennsylvania (2), Vermont (1), Virginia (1), and Washington (1). And Consumer Reports recommended that people avoid that leafy green until more information is available. The information about this outbreak has not been updated by government officials since December 28, 2017.

"To avoid any confusion and in an abundance of caution, we have temporarily removed romaine lettuce from our restaurants in the USA and Canada", said Heidi Schauer, Wendy's spokeswoman.

Symptoms of E.coli usually start within three to 10 days after consumption.

This infection can sometimes develop into a complication called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), which is a type of kidney failure.

She said American consumers "deserve more than this slow and insufficient response" and that families are "now left wondering if the food they are eating is safe". If you are concerned that you have an E. coli infection, talk to your healthcare provider.
