Multistate E. coli outbreak traced to romaine lettuce from Arizona

15 Апреля 2018

The Centers for Disease Control says a multistate E. coli outbreak that has sickened almost three dozen people is linked to lettuce grown in Arizona. Six people have been hospitalized, one person suffered a type of kidney failure and that 65 percent of those ill are women.

A total of six cases were reported in New Jersey along with four in Idaho, two each in CT and Pennsylvania and one each in Missouri, Ohio and Washington.

On Friday the Centers for Disease Control said that it had determined that 35 people in eleven states were included in the outbreak.

No common grower, supplier, or distributor has been identified yet.

The state has not named any eatery involved in the outbreak.

Health experts are holding their breath in the midst of a risky food-borne bacterial outbreak that has sickened many people but so far has not caused any deaths. Restaurants and retailers are not advised to avoid serving or selling any particular food.

Traceback investigations are ongoing to determine the source of chopped romaine lettuce supplied to restaurant locations where ill people ate.

The agency stated this E. coli outbreak isn't related to the E. coli outbreak that struck the United States and Canada in November and December, for which Romaine lettuce also got blamed.

The department says that the infected lettuce had been consumed both in homes and at restaurants.

A case of E.coli has been linked to 35 cases of sickness reported in several states, including two in CT. Restaurant customers should ask the origin of the lettuce before eating it.

The symptoms of E. coli include stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting, according to the CDC.

Downes said the Department of Public Health is assisting the CDC in their investigation.
