Coli Outbreak Linked to Arizona Producers

Six people have been hospitalized and 17 have been infected with a dangerous strain of E. coli across seven states including New Jersey Pennsylvania and Washington

Despite the fact that 7 U.S. states have been affected by E. Coli, so far, only New Jersey seems to concentrate most of the cases with 6 confirmed E. Coil infections.

No word on what caused it. Symptoms include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting. If you can not confirm the source of the romaine lettuce, do not buy it or eat it, the CDC advised.

Consumers who have store-bought chopped romaine at home should not eat it and should throw it away, the CDC said. Two people have developed kidney failure from the infection.

A multistate E. coli outbreak from an unknown source has led to a number of hospitalizations is being investigated by federal and state officials.

Seventeen people have fallen ill so far and six of them have been hospitalized, according to CNN. In a race against time, they are trying to figure out exactly what food is causing the multi-state outbreak so they can remove it from the food supply before too many other people become sick or possibly die.

The FDA recommends consumers ask restaurants and other food service establishments where their romaine lettuce originated and avoid chopped romaine lettuce that originated from Yuma, Arizona.

"Most people reported eating a salad at a restaurant, and romaine lettuce was the only common ingredient identified among the salads eaten", the agency said, explaining its probe into the illnesses.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and food safety and inspection officials from the Department of Agriculture are also looking into the matter, according to the CDC. The reason that the strain is so risky for people to come in contact with is that it produces a nasty Shiga toxin, which can make us really sick. The patients are between 12 and 84 years old.

In a joint statement, the Produce Marketing Association, Arizona Leafy Greens Marketing Agreement, California Leafy Greens Marketing Agreement, United Fresh and Western Growers said they were cooperating fully with government and working closely to further identify the specific source of this outbreak.
