After New Jersey DOH Reports E. coli Outbreak, 6 More States Identified
The CDC confirms that there have been at least 35 cases of E. coli infections in 11 states tied to the pre-chopped romaine lettuce thus far.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, six people have been hospitalized with Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7 infections, including one person who developed a type of kidney failure.
Illnesses began between March 22 and March 31, as the CDC said symptoms typically manifest two to eight days after ingesting the germ.
The CDC said that no brand, distributor or supplier has been identified in connection with the E. coli outbreak. All we know so far is that this potentially deadly bacteria has infected people in states on both coasts of the U.S., and that it's sickening both young and old alike: the 17 ill patients range from age 12 to 84, and 65% are females.
The chopped romaine lettuce outbreak is not related to the E. coli O157: H7 outbreak involving leafy greens that began in late 2017 and was officially closed out on January 25, 2018.
The chopped romaine lettuce has been consumed at restaurants and at people's homes.
A common source for the outbreak remains to be identified; officials are in the process of interviewing individuals who have fallen ill to glean more information about common products that they may have eaten or to learn of any other potential exposures in the week prior to illness onset.
The current outbreak is not related to a recent multistate outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 infections linked to leafy greens.
