@Regran_ed from @dr_holistic_health - No ROMAINE LETTUCE BRAND IS SAFE not even ORGANIC or baby greens😱CDC declares ANOTHER E. coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce
32 people in 11 states have been struck down by lettuce-linked E. coli
13 of the victims are receiving hospital treatment
The CDC told anyone with romaine at home to throw it away
No romaine lettuce can be considered safe to eat in America, the CDC warned today.
There is another E. coli outbreak in the US, and the agency has traced it back - yet again - to the usual suspect: the crunchy and leafy green served across the country
In all previous outbreaks this year - which resulted in five deaths - the agency has been careful with its wording, saying officials couldn't be sure which romaine we should be concerned about.
But now, they aren't taking chances: the CDC said anyone with romaine at home should throw it away - even if you're not sure it's romaine but suspect it might be.
'Do not eat any romaine lettuce, including whole heads and hearts, chopped, organic and salad mixes with romaine until we learn more,' the agency said on Tuesday afternoon. 'If you don’t know if it’s romaine or can’t confirm the source, don’t eat it.'
Most people infected with E. coli develop diarrhea and vomiting. More severe infections can lead to kidney failure.
Beyond warning consumers, the agency has told all retailers and restaurants to stop serving and selling romaine until they learn more about the outbreak.
'This investigation is ongoing and the advice will be updated as more information is available.' - Daily Mail
