Here's what the CDC thinks caused the romaine lettuce E. coli outbreak

  • CDC E. coli Outbreak Over Tainted Irrigation Water Appears to be Source

Attorney Fred Pritzker, who has represented clients in romaine lettuce E. coli lawsuit, said, "Even when you recover from this infection, there is still a risk you will develop a serious complication in the future such as kidney disease".

But just how did that lettuce become contaminated in the first place?

The last large E. coli outbreak like this involved spinach grown in California in 2006. Ninety-six people required hospitalization and 5 people died-Arkansas, California, Minnesota (2), and NY. Five people from four states died.

They previously connected the illnesses with romaine lettuce grown in Yuma, Arizona, which supplies most of the romaine sold in the USA during the winter, the Associated Press reported. The outbreak "appears to be over", the CDC says, and may have been caused by canal water contaminated with food poisoning bacteria.

Below it the Yuma growing region which straddles the Colorado River and the California and Arizona border and Gila River. But what's important here is that Yuma County says it grows 90% of all leafy greens America eats between the months of November and March. Health officials said the lettuce that caused the national outbreak was linked to many farms in the region.

The location of the canal has not been released, and the source of its contamination has not yet been determined. It was across multiple supply chains.

"The E. coli O157:H7 found in the canal water is closely related genetically to the E. coli O157:H7 from ill people", the CDC said in a final update on the outbreak.

The Food and Drug Administration is still trying to find out how the bacteria got into the water and the lettuce. That led to suspicions that the outbreak might be from a common water source. "Evaluation of these samples is ongoing", the FDA said in an update. Public health officials interviewed ill persons, and identified chopped romaine from Yuma as the likely source of contamination on April 13, 2018. Some of those who got sick didn't eat romaine lettuce but had been in close contact with someone who did.
