53 reported cases of E. coli linked to romaine lettuce: CDC
1 dead from E. coli outbreak in romaine lettuce, CDC says
“Most of the people who recently became ill ate romaine lettuce when lettuce from the Yuma [Arizona] growing region was likely still available in stores, restaurants, or in peoples’ homes,” the report said. “Some people who became sick did not report eating romaine lettuce, but had close contact with someone else who got sick from eating romaine lettuce.”
After the initial outbreak, the CDC issued a warning on romaine lettuce. The warning is no longer in effect as the contaminated lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona, growing region is no longer harvested.
The CDC’s investigation is ongoing.
