Romaine Lettuce Is Not Safe To Eat Whatsoever, CDC Warns

Public health officials report that two IL residents are among almost three dozen people affected by a strain of E. coli bacteria in romaine lettuce.

Finally, Revol Greens wants to assure customers who might have its romaine lettuce in their refrigerators that it is safe to eat. Ill people reported eating different types of romaine lettuce in several restaurants and at home. Stores and restaurants should not sell or serve it. It isn't clear why that is, but it could be because it is such a commonly used lettuce that gets sent to various places for chopping and processing, said Raghela Scavuzzo, manager of the Illinois Specialty Growers Association. Six individuals have been hospitalized after becoming sick. One person developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure. No deaths have been reported, according to the Public Health Agency of Canada.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to pinpoint the cause.

A Department of Health spokeswoman said: “Locally, [the Department of] Environmental Health will be contacting food suppliers to follow up. "This is especially important ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, when people will be sitting down for family meals".

The voluntary recall was issued by Conagra Brands due to "a positive finding of Salmonella in a retail sample of Duncan Hines Classic White cake mix that may be linked to a Salmonella outbreak that is now being investigated by CDC (US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and FDA", Conagra said in a statement.

The strain of E. coli bacteria is the same one that caused a similar outbreak a year ago. Another E. coli O157:H7 outbreak linked to romaine lettuce probably has you wondering where this contaminated product is coming from and how is it related to past outbreaks.

The nationwide recall of romaine lettuce couldn't have come at a worse time.

"There is not enough information to issue a recall". So while the romaine lettuce linked to the E. coli outbreak earlier this year was from Arizona, romaine lettuce on shelves now is mostly from California, regulators said.

All items containing romaine lettuce are being pulled from shelves across Canada within Sobeys' national store network.

Health experts say it takes about five to seven days to recover from E. coli poisoning.

Officials say the patient is an adult under the age of 65, but said little more about the case to CFRA.

This follows an outbreak of E.coli in Romaine lettuce in eleven states across the US.
