Outbreak of E.coli Infections Linked to Romaine Lettuce

The CDC, public health and regulatory officials in several states, Canada, and the US FDA are investigating a multistate outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7 infections linked to romaine lettuce.

The CDC is advising US consumers not to eat any romaine lettuce, and retailers and restaurants not to serve or sell any, until more is learned about the outbreak. The investigation is ongoing and the advice will be updated as more information is available.
