Coli outbreak: One death reported from California

A Moore baby is recovering after contracting E. coli

- At least one person has now died in connection with the nationwide E. coli outbreak due to romaine lettuce.

Other states reporting people sickened by E. Coli include Washington, Michigan, Utah, Colorado, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri, Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Virginia, Georgia, New York, Connecticut and MA.

Health officials continue to advise consumers not to eat any romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona growing region.

The CDC reiterated its advice of not eating or buying romaine lettuce, normally used in salads, unless the source of the lettuce can be confirmed. Fourteen of those patients developed a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome.




The government now has reports of 121 people sickened in 25 states.

This is the biggest Shiga-toxin producing E.coli outbreak since a 2006 outbreak linked to spinach grown in the Salinas Valley in California, Wise said.

The latest public health emergency follows an earlier E. coli outbreak linked to romaine reported earlier this year. Every winter, the Yuma region provides most of the romaine sold in the U.S. This includes whole heads and hearts of romaine, chopped romaine, baby romaine, organic romaine, and salad mixes that include romaine lettuce. "Washing it doesn't make it safe". However, the US Food and Drug Administration identified Harrison Farms in Yuma as the grower of the whole heads of romaine that caused illness in eight inmates at a correctional facility in Nome, Alaska. "If you can not confirm the source of the romaine lettuce, do not buy it or eat it". The CDC noted there may be a lag time of two to three weeks from the time a person becomes ill with E. coli to when that illness is reported to federal officials. Signs of HUS include fatigue, decreased frequency of urination, and a loss of the normally pink color in the cheeks and inside the lower eyelids. These complications are more common in young children under 5, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems.
