  • Sodexo reassures Univ. that its romaine lettuce is unaffected by E. coli outbreak

Iowa, Nebraska, and OR have now joined the list of states reporting E. coli cases linked to romaine lettuce.

The most recent cases reported by the CDC started May 2, part of the 23 new cases across the nation in the last week, bringing the total to 172. It is unlikely that any romaine lettuce from the Yuma area still is available in people's homes, stores or restaurants due to its 21-day shelf life.

But the last shipments of romaine lettuce from Yuma were harvested on April 16, according to the Food and Drug Administration. The leafy greens industry has shifted to California over the past two months. The state health lab confirmed the link to the Yuma region, Rooney said. So, if you were exposed to the contaminated lettuce, you likely would have gotten sick by now.

"It takes two to three weeks between when a person becomes ill with E. coli and when the illness is reported to CDC", the agency said.

"CDC is updating its advice to consumers". One death has been reported. The CDC also noted that 75 people have been hospitalized. Sixty-five percent of ill people are female.

The CDC said that consumers should speak with their doctor if they have symptoms of an E. coli infection, which include diarrhea, severe stomach cramps and vomiting. One farm in Yuma has been identified as the source of the lettuce that sickened eight prisoners in Alaska, but FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb revealed Wednesday evening a bit of how complicated the case.
