Coli Warning now Involves all Romaine

The contaminated romaine lettuce was traced back to Yuma in southwestern Arizona, and the CDC advise the public not to buy or consume romaine lettuce that is from the area or of unknown origin. Guam's division of Environmental Health warns the public of an E Coli outbreak on the mainland. The investigation remains open, but researchers are starting to get more clarity on the possible source (or sources) of the outbreak.

The Representative from Massy Stores Head Office preferred to respond under anonymity stating, "None of the romaine lettuce at the Massy Stores is from the Arizona region".

"We want to know what happened", Alameda said. They say it would be the FDA that would be able to speak on testing requirements for produce suppliers/distributors. Now, however, it includes whole-head lettuce after several people at an Alaskan correctional facility were infected. Ill people reported eating romaine lettuce. Idaho and Pennsylvania have seen the most cases with 10 and 12, respectively.

The CDC hasn't put out their latest numbers for this week yet. No, said Ian Williams, chief of the CDC's Outbreak Response and Prevention Branch.

So there could be at least 66 people sick in this ongoing outbreak.

Most people recover from E. coli O157:H7 infection in five to seven days, but for some the infection can be severe and life-threatening, especially for very young children and the elderly.

"The CFIA is in close communication with US authorities and if it is determined that contaminated romaine has been imported into Canada, the CFIA will take the appropriate steps to protect the public, including recalling the product as necessary", Anna Matos said Monday by email. Intestinal bleeding and serious complications such as hemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS) may also develop in some people.

So far, there have been no official reported cases of E. coli sicknesses in Maryland, but there have been some just over the state line.

Eating food or drinking water that has been contaminated by E. coli bacteria may cause gastrointestinal distress.
