Reports of illness from E. coli contaminated romaine lettuce hits Sacramento Co

Posted April 28, 2018

The total case count for the recent E. coli outbreak is now at 98 people across 22 states, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

Pennsylvania is the worst affected state, with 18 people falling ill, while 16 have become sick in California.

"This particular strain of E. coli can cause severe illness, including bloody diarrhea and hemolytic uremic syndrome, which is a type of kidney failure", said Dr. Scott Lindquist, state epidemiologist for communicable disease.

No deaths have been reported.

The CDC linked the outbreak to the Yuma growing region in Arizona, advising consumers not eat or buy romaine lettuce from that area. This advisory includes whole heads, hearts of romaine, chopped romaine, baby romaine, organic romaine, and salads and salad mixes containing romaine lettuce.

Although not one of those affected by the outbreak has died, 10 patients developed a unsafe form of kidney failure, the agency said.
