Because most of the people who fell ill evidently got their sickness from consuming restaurant salads, the CDC recommends restaurants and retailers to know where their supply of romaine lettuce comes from, and if it is from the Yuma, Arizona region, to not sell or serve them to customers.
An E. coli outbreak stemming from romaine lettuce has affected 53 people across 16 states, according to CNN.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expanding its romaine lettuce recall.
HUDS, however, sources its lettuce from Salinas, Calif., a region unaffected by E. coli, Martin said.
The first reports of illness in March were linked only to chopped romaine lettuce.
"HUDS purchases all its produce through Costa Fruit & Produce in Chelsea, MA", she added. As of yet, the infected states include: Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Virginia, Missouri, Louisiana, Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Washington and Alaska.
Ill people at a correctional facility in Alaska also reported becoming sick after eating lettuce that was traced back to whole heads of romaine from the Yuma growing region, according to a CDC investigation update Friday.
The warning prompted several restaurants in Southern Arizona to stop selling salads temporarily, while others reported they have safe shipments of lettuce and are serving it. The restaurants reported using bagged, chopped romaine lettuce to make salads. So far, no common grower, brand, distributor, or supplier has been identified as the specific source of the outbreak.
The FDA is continuing to investigate this outbreak and will share more information as it becomes available.
Eating food or drinking water that has been contaminated by E. coli bacteria may cause gastrointestinal distress. Of the hospitalizations, five patients developed a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome.
Three Montanans have been hospitalized for treatment of E. coli O157:H7, the strain linked to lettuce from Arizona, said Alisha Johnson, environmental health specialist with the Missoula City-County Health Department.
