Coli outbreak is linked to 2017 leafy greens outbreak

Coli outbreak is linked to 2017 leafy greens outbreak

Some people may develop a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome. If you have eaten romaine lettuce in the past week and have been ill with similar symptoms, see your doctor.

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services announced the two cases Wednesday. Freshii also was offering kale or spinach as substitutes when customers ordered salads containing romaine.

Epidemiologic evidence indicates that romaine lettuce is a likely source of this outbreak.

However, he said, when it's a consumer advisory that warns people not to eat lettuce, it's much less clear for retailers about what they should do. It has resulted in one death and 164 reported illnesses in 35 states.

The FDA is investigating the new Romaine E. coli O157:H7 outbreak that has sickened at least 32 people in 11 states.

"Contaminated romaine lettuce may still be on the market, including in restaurants, grocery stores and any establishments that serve food", according to PHAC. "The Government of Canada has started more and more, issuing consumer advisories rather than issuing recalls", said McLinton. Six people have been hospitalized, one with serious complications.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning people to avoid eating the lettuce. That outbreak, which was declared over in June, was traced to contamination in the Yuma, Ariz., growing region.

The agency also advised US consumers to wash and sanitize refrigerator shelves and drawers that have contacted romaine lettuce.

While we wait for the formal investigation to officially name the growing area, it's important to note that this is the third E. coli outbreak in the past year to involve romaine lettuce or leafy greens.

"The suspension of import permits for Romaine lettuce will be enforced until further notice", the Ministry said.

The downside? The cows then get a bacteria in their gut: E. coli, which - after going No. 2 - can get transferred to the water supply and go into plants like lettuce. He also admitted that financial losses associated with recalling the lettuce from all store shelves would be significant.

Health experts say it takes about five to seven days to recover from E. coli poisoning.
