E. coli outbreak reaches Minnesota

The E. coli outbreak from romaine lettuce has now left 149 people ill - almost half of whom battling the infection in hospitals across 29 states. As of May 8, 2018, 149 people living in 29 states are sick. One person has died in California, and 64 people have been hospitalized.

In a statement to PEOPLE, a representative for the CDC said they are advising consumers to "ask your suppliers about the source of their romaine lettuce".

Cell death triggers the body to send red blood cells to the kidneys, causing clots and kidney failure. The ages of those who were sickened ranges from 1 to 88, and 65 percent were female.

Do not eat or buy romaine lettuce unless you can confirm it is not from the Yuma growing region. "This advice includes whole heads and hearts of romaine, chopped romaine, baby romaine, organic romaine, and salads and salad mixes containing romaine lettuce".

"Of the 112 people interviewed, 102, or 91%, reported eating romaine lettuce in the week before their illness started", the CDC wrote on its website Wednesday.

The E. coli O157:H7 HUS outbreak that is linked to romaine lettuce is the largest of its kind since 2006.

The number of people infected by the romaine lettuce could still increase, due to cases after April 17. Illnesses that occurred in the last two to three weeks might not yet be reported because of the time between when a person becomes ill with E. coli and when the illness is reported to CDC.

Investigators said last month that they are looking at "dozens" of farms as possible sources.

For the record, the demographic group most impacted by the outbreak is women. "We may not get there".

To explain the diverse geographical spread of this outbreak, the FDA said it is still investigating multiple points of origin and distribution. For example, Salinas, Calif., is also a big romaine-producing area. Previously, the CDC warned that the strain of E. coli identified, O157:H7, is particularly virulent and known to be associated with higher hospitalization and complication rates.

In Minnesota, 10 people are sick. Those heads were harvested between March 5 and 16 and are past their 21-day shelf life. It may be that a more virulent strain of E. coli is to blame, she said, or that the lettuce was contaminated with many bacteria. In Pennsylvania, 20 people are sick.

Four more states have reported E. coli food poisoning linked to an ongoing investigation by the CDC.
