What you need to know about the E. coli outbreak on romaine lettuce
The Douglas County Health Department has confirmed one case of E. coli O157:H7 related to the outbreak in romaine lettuce grown in the Yuma, Arizona, region. That was the message Wednesday from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and if not exactly a thundering signal of "all clear", it's pretty close.
Health officials say almost two dozen more cases of a food poisoning outbreak linked to romaine lettuce grown in Arizona have been reported.
In good news for salad lovers everywhere, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is now advising that it is safe to crunch into romaine lettuce once again.
Romaine lettuce is displayed on a shelf at a supermarket in San Rafael on April 23, 2018.
Three more states - Iowa, Nebraska, and OR - have also reported cases, the CDC said.
The outbreak has made 172 people sick in 32 states, and one person has died, the CDC said. The leafy greens industry has shifted to California over the past two months. Since romaine lettuce has a shelf life of several weeks, it is possible some contaminated lettuce may still be in stores, restaurants, or home refrigerators.
At least 75 people have been hospitalized, including 20 with kidney failure.
It's the worst outbreak of E. coli since 2006 when illnesses traced to spinach killed three and sickened more than 270.
The reported strain of E. coli, which produces poisonous substances known as Shiga toxins, can cause severe abdominal cramps, bloody diarrhea and vomiting.
