  • E. coli outbreak in US, Canada may be linked to romaine lettuce

A deadly strain of E. coli bacteria has sickened 17 people in the United States and 41 in Canada. The outbreak of E. coli, a bacteria that can cause serious complications and even lead to death, has infected individuals in 13 US states (California, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Vermont and Washington state). According to the CDC, five Americans have been hospitalized so far, and one has died. Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration hasn't officially recommended that consumers avoid romaine lettuce yet, health officials in Canada have advised their eastern providence residents to use other salad greens at the moment.

Here's a list of all 13 states where people have been infected: California, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Vermont, and Washington states.

The food-safety team at Consumer Reports is advising consumers to find a different lettuce until the cause is identified and tainted products are removed from stores.

"People in these groups should be particularly vigilant about avoiding romaine lettuce", Rogers said. Canadian health authorities identified romaine lettuce as the source of the outbreak in their country, and since December 14 have been advising people to consider eating other types of salad greens until further notice. The agency says they can not yet link the outbreak to a certain type of food.

"Very young children and the elderly are more likely to develop severe illness and HUS than others, but even healthy older children and young adults can become seriously ill", as the CDC has said.

While the agency was still collecting information to determine whether those affected consumed leafy greens, the Public Health Agency of Canada has identified romaine lettuce as the source.

Chapman suspects that officials will make an announcement soon about whether the USA and Canadian outbreaks are indeed the same.
