Recent E. coli outbreak spreads to Idaho

Recent E. coli outbreak spreads to Idaho”

Twenty-two ill people have been hospitalized, including three people who developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure.

People infected range in age from 12 to 84 years old with a median age of 29.

The latest multistate outbreak of E. coli has sickened 35 people, including seven in New Jersey and nine in Pennsylvania.

Illnesses that occurred after March 27, 2018, might not yet be reported due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill with E. coli and when the illness is reported.

States that have reported people infected with the E. coli strain include Washington, Idaho, Missouri, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and MI.

This is a different E. coli O157:H7 HUS outbreak from the E. coli outbreak that took place from November to December 2017. If you can not determine the source of your chopped romaine lettuce, do not sell or serve it. Twenty-six (93%) of 28 people interviewed reported consuming romaine lettuce in the week before their illness started. The CDC says all the victims were sickened between March 22 and March 31, with most reporting that they ate romaine within a week of getting sick. Restaurants and stores are advised not to serve or sell chopped romaine lettuce. The restaurants reported using bagged, chopped romaine lettuce to make salads. Numerous cases so far were contracted from salad mixes used in restaurants, but some cases have been linked to bagged romaine purchased in stores.

The CDC reports that this investigation remains active, and that it will provide an update when it can.

The CDC tracked the infections across eleven states to romaine lettuce from Yuma, Arizona, but no brand or grower has been identified, according to the CDC.

Romaine lettuce is the one behind a recent e-coli outbreak impacting consumers across the country but that lettuce was grown in Yuma so we are the most likely to have it in our grocery stores. "The FDA now does not have information to indicate that whole-head romaine lettuce or hearts of romaine have contributed to this outbreak".
