CDC Warning: Do Not Eat Any Romaine Lettuce

Two days before families across America sit down for big Thanksgiving meals, the CDC is warning people not to eat romaine lettuce of any kind, due to an outbreak of E. coli infections.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 32 people have become ill from a strain of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli in 11 states from Oct. 8 through Oct. 31. Thirteen of those people were hospitalized, including one who suffered kidney failure. In addition, at least 18 people in Canada have been infected with E. coli in Ontario and Quebec.

All of those cases have been linked to romaine lettuce, and the CDC said consumers should not eat any romaine lettuce of any kind, as “no common grower, supplier, distributor, or brand of romaine lettuce has been identified.”
