"CDC continues to investigate a multi-state outbreak of E.coli o 157 infections linked to romaine lettuce".

But unlike with romaine lettuce, regulators are not warning people to avoid turkey. The CDC recommends people, nationwide, to toss their romaine lettuce as it may be contaminated with E-Coli.

"Furthermore, it is important to remember that we are looking for a small amount of lettuce contaminated with E. coli O157 amidst the large volume of safe romaine lettuce that is purchased, served and consumed in Canada on a daily basis", the Public Health Agency of Canada reported.

So far, there have been 22 reports of people becoming sick in Canada and more than three dozen in the US, but no deaths.

Murphy said this includes whole heads and hearts of romaine, chopped romaine, and salads and salad mixes containing romaine lettuce."If you do not know if the lettuce is romaine, do not eat it and throw it away", Murphy advises. Two families - one in British Columbia (who had been in California the week before) and one in NY (woman developed HUS and was in ICU for weeks) - reported romaine consumption and a positive test for Escherichia coli O157:H7 (E. coli O157:H7). People are also being advised to throw out any romaine they have at home.

Many major grocery chains have pulled the product from their shelves, but Charlebois said because there hasn't been a formal recall of the product, grocers will be on the hook for the losses.

Individuals confirmed as patients in the current outbreak became sick between mid-October and early November 2018. Producers in certain regions of the nation are just now starting to harvest.

He said the government agency's goal is to withdraw the product at risk of contamination from market and then "re-stock" the market.

They should also wash any fridge drawers, containers or countertops where lettuce may have been stored with soap and warm water. Others said they've long since stopped buying the lettuce variety.

Marler Clark, The Food Safety Law Firm, is the nation's leading law firm representing victims of E. coli outbreaks and hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS).

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as state and local authorities are investigating on a multistate e.coli outbreak. The so-called superfood saw a meteoric rise with kale-devoted cookbooks containing recipes of chips and caesar salads made with kale bringing the food into the mainstream. "That's what's going to increase consumer confidence is if companies get ahead of the curve".
