Latest: More E.Coli cases linked to Romaine Lettuce



Thirty-one more persons from 10 states  have been reported ill from the romaine lettuce infection, taking the count to 84 cases (41 hospitalizations) from 19 states since the last update on April 18, 2018.

Colorado, Georgia, and South Dakota make up the 3 additional states with cases.

According to the CDC website, age of infected persons range from 1 to 88 years and most recent illness started on April 12, 2018. 

Due to the time between when a person becomes ill with E. coli and when the illness is reported to CDC , illnesses that occurred in the last couple of weeks might not have been reported.

For now, taking necessary precautions and checking the source of your lettuce is strongly recommended.
