  • Outbreak of E. Coli Linked To Romaine Lettuce ‘Appears To Be Over

This is about the same timing of an outbreak of E. coli in Canada, which health officials declared over on Wednesday.

The last reported illness started on 12 December.

No individuals have illness onset dates after 12 December so the outbreak appears to be over.

The cases in the United States are the same strain as the cases in Canada, and some of them have the same genetic fingerprint.

Officials say that WGS data alone "are not sufficient to prove a link". This investigation is ongoing.

The CDC, for its part, says that it hasn't yet identified the type of leafy green involved and that it's investigation is continuing.

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).

Healthy adults usually recover within a week, but young children and older adults have an increased risk of developing a life-threatening type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome.

You've probably heard by now that 41 people in Canada have contracted E. coli from what possibly could have been contaminated romaine lettuce. Neither the CDC nor Canadian health officials have provided any information on where the romaine lettuce potentially involved in the illnesses was grown or processed, so for now, consumers should assume that any romaine lettuce, even when sold in bags and packages, could possibly be contaminated, Rogers said. Of 13 people interviewed, all 13 reported eating leafy greens.

Still, as of last week, Consumer Reports has been advising consumers to avoid romaine lettuce until we can be certain it is safe to eat.

General Manager Dale Huss looks over a field of romaine lettuce with drip lines installed in it at Sea Mist Farms in Castroville Wednesday, May 22, 2013. Based on this information, USA health officials concluded that ill people in this outbreak were not more likely than healthy people to have eaten romaine lettuce.

CDC and FDA will continue to update the public as more information on the outbreak source is uncovered. The outbreak in late 2017 sickened almost 20 people in the US and 40 in Canada.

Jean Halloran, director of Food Policy Initiatives at Consumers Union, said it's unclear what steps FDA and CDC are taking in the wake of one of the most serious outbreaks that has occurred in the Trump administration.

However, officials indicated the outbreak in the United States may also be over soon. They include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting.

For the record, symptoms of E. coli begin two to eight days after consuming the bacteria, notes CNN. "For instance, if the equipment at a processing plant is contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, new product could become a source of further infections". People should also thoroughly wash fresh produce. There has been one death, which was previously reported. Don't buy romaine lettuce and don't use any still be at home until there is more information on the source of contamination.
