CDC warns of serious E. coli outbreak in lettuce

DeLauro pushes CDC director for answers on E. coli outbreak Hold the Romaine Lettuce

However, officials indicated the outbreak in the United States may also be over soon.

Although the most recent illness started on December 12, there is a delay between when someone gets sick and when the illness is reported to CDC. States with active outbreaks of the bacteria in question are California, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia and Washington.

No individuals have illness onset dates after 12 December so the outbreak appears to be over. Although the likely source of the USA outbreak appears to be leafy greens, officials have not specifically identified a type of leafy greens eaten by people who became sick.

"Because CDC has not identified a specific type of leafy greens linked to the USA infections, and because of the short shelf life of leafy greens, CDC is not recommending that US residents avoid any particular food at this time." the release said. But officials here aren't singling out romaine and won't recommend avoiding any particular food.

Whole genome sequencing (WGS) showed the STEC O157:H7 strain from ill people in the United States was closely related genetically to the strain from those infected in Canada. WGS data alone are not sufficient to prove a link; health officials rely on other sources of data, such as interviews from ill people, to support the WGS link. Investigators also look at other data, including interviews from ill persons, to support that evidence. Of 13 interviewed, all 13 said they ate leafy greens.

"People in these groups should be particularly vigilant about avoiding romaine lettuce", Rogers said. Consumer Reports still warned against eating romaine.

Still, as of last week, Consumer Reports has been advising consumers to avoid romaine lettuce until we can be certain it is safe to eat.

On the same day, CDC announced the E. coli strains appeared related but would not identify a source of the infections.

An FDA spokesperson later confirmed this position to Consumer Reports: "This work is ongoing".

Most people develop diarrhea (often bloody) and stomach cramps.

Symptoms of E. coli typically begin two to eight days after consuming the bacteria.

"How do you know it's over?" "For instance, if the equipment at a processing plant is contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, new product could become a source of further infections". Our lawyers represent families of children in personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits against grocery stores, food producers, shippers, restaurants, retailers, and schools.

Healthy adults usually recover within a week, but young children and older adults have an increased risk of developing a life-threatening type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome.
