There has been a spread of E. Coli outbreak connected to romaine lettuce. Yesterday April 25, 2018 News came out that the total number of cases now stands at 84. The outbreak has now spread to 19 states.

“The U.S Food and Drug administration and the center for disease control and prevention advise American consumers to throw away and avoid eating Romaine lettuce, originating from Yuma, Arizona.” They also confirmed eating Romaine lettuce not originating from Yuma ,Arizona is OK to eat.

The investigators have still not identified anyone connected or responsible to this outbreak.

The toxin known as Shiga in the lettuce gets people sick within two to eight days of swallowing the germ. This causes diarrhea, stomach cramps and vomiting. They said most of the time people recover in one week, it can lead to kidney failure.

    As the article says is unfortunate such bacteria. With the hope that this won’t affect too many people. The healthy administration apparently is working hard to pervert any spread of this bacteria that comes from the Romaine lettuce.

    This is insane there are over 80 cases of E coli being found on our lettuce. I’m happy that the health department is working hard to stop the out break, but they need to find a solution very soon.
