The agency has not identified a common grower, supplier, distributor or brand.

In the past two weeks, 35 people in the US have become ill and one person in the USA has died in the multi-state outbreak, according to Consumer Reports.

State and local health department officials are investigating multiple reports of E. coli infections likely linked to chopped romaine lettuce.

Romaine lettuce, it's great for Cesar salad, it's also a nice addition to tacos and sandwiches, but during your next trip to the grocery store you may want to cross that item off your list.

An E. coli outbreak linked to potentially contaminated romaine lettuce now has infected 35 people across 11 different states and resulted in 22 hospitalizations.

CDC also said the number of cases may increase "due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill with E. coli and when the illness is reported".




The people who are in the age range from 12 years to 84 years, with an average age of 29.

"E. coli can cause serious illness, so it is critical that everyone take precautions by not eating store-bought chopped romaine lettuce, even if you or someone from you family has consumed the product and did not get sick", said Dr. Cara Christ, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services.

As of Friday, no deaths were reported in the latest outbreak but three of those sickened developed a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome, the CDC reported. Most people with an E. coli infection start feeling sick three to four days after eating or drinking something that contains the bacteria. The symptoms include loss of appetite, fatigue, severe abdominal cramping, diarrhea and fever. Twenty-six (93%) of 28 people interviewed reported consuming romaine lettuce in the week before their illness started.

"If you can not confirm the source of the romaine lettuce, do not buy it or eat it", the CDC said.

According to a spokesperson for Covelli Enterprises, which owns more than 300 Panera restaurants, the company has found a new supplier from outside the Yuma, Arizona region to provide romaine.
