Iowa, Nebraska, and OR have now joined the list of states reporting E. coli cases linked to romaine lettuce. As of May 15, the CDC was reporting three people were ill from the outbreak in Colorado. One death was in California. It takes an average of two to three weeks after the point of infection for the CDC to be notified of an E. coli case. "Once it was confirmed that the romaine we serve did not come from Yuma, Arizona, we deemed it to be safe for consumption". The CDC added in the release that the cases still being reported are from the lettuce that is still in circulation or remains in the home refrigerators.

Harvesting of romaine from Yuma, Ariz. - source of the outbreak - is over and it's likely no longer being sold, the CDC says.

Avoid buying romaine lettuce unless you can confirm the source is other than the Yuma growing region.

The health officials reported that nearly more two dozen cases of food poisoning outbreak were linked to the romaine lettuce that was harvested in Arizona.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 23 more people from 13 states are sick since its update last week.

As of Wednesday, 172 cases had been reported to the CDC, with one death and seventy-five hospitalizations, twenty of which were people who had developed a type of kidney failure. However, certain E. coli strains may cause illness, such as the O157:H7 strain found in the infected romaine lettuce that produces the Shiga toxin. The popular variety of lettuce has been linked to a widespread E. coli outbreak since last month, but the CDC said the contaminated lettuce may have passed its expiration date.

The Food and Drug Administration has been trying to discover exactly where and when the romaine involved in this latest outbreak was contaminated. Many of these pathogenic E. coli cause diarrhea and are referred to as diarrheagenic E. coli.
