E. Coli outbreak hit 11 states in US

Around 32 people in 11 states were affected by E. coli outbreak. The illness started in October, however, only now it became known that E. coli might be spread by Romaine lettuce.

“Consumers who have any type of romaine lettuce in their home should not eat it and should throw it away, even if some of it was eaten and no one has gotten sick,” the CDC said in a statement.

“This isn’t the first romaine outbreak we have seen in the recent past, and we will continue to take steps to identify the root causes of these events and take action to prevent future outbreaks,” U.S. Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said.

“That’s why we think it’s critical to get this information out,” he added. “We understand fully the impact this has, not just on the growers and the distributors but also on consumers — consumers who are preparing meals for the holidays, who have product now that they’re going to need to discard, maybe food that they’ve already cooked.”

CDC officials urge amid E. coli outbreak concerns as it has sickened over 32 people in 11 states. The reports indicate infected people starting from October 8, 2018 to October 31, 2018. See the map with states affected by E. coli infection.

“Ill people reported eating different types of romaine lettuce in several restaurants and at home,” CDC added.
