Coli-Tainted Romaine Lettuce Likely No Longer on Store Shelves

Coli-Tainted Romaine Lettuce Likely No Longer on Store Shelves

The E. Coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce grown in the Yuma, Arizona region may be ending.

But the last shipment of romaine from Yuma left on April 16 and the growing season there is over. The CDC website for the outbreak recommended that consumers not "eat or buy romaine lettuce unless [they] can confirm it is not from the Yuma growing region".

Health officials say almost two dozen more cases of a food poisoning outbreak linked to romaine lettuce grown in Arizona have been reported. So, if you were exposed to the contaminated lettuce, you likely would have gotten sick by now.

You might be seeing romaine lettuce back on the store shelves. The leafy greens industry has shifted to California over the past two months.




A Douglas County resident has tested positive for E. coli linked to the romaine lettuce grown in the Yuma, Arizona, region.

The person could have consumed the romaine lettuce at home, at a local restaurant or somewhere outside the area, Rooney said.

Since last reported a week ago, 23 people have fallen ill to E. coli, bringing the total to 172 ill people from 32 states. One death has been reported. Of the 157 people who were ill that the CDC has information on, 75 have been hospitalized and 20 have developed hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), the form of kidney failure that can be fatal.

The FDA, he tweeted, "ruled out that the contamination was caused by just one farm suggesting it was a complex problem and will take further time to investigate".
