On May 16, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released an update indicating that the E. coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce from the Yuma region of Arizona had spread to three additional states (Iowa, Nebraska, and Oregon) and sickened 23 more people since its last update on May 9. However, the agency explained that stores and restaurants are now likely clear of all contaminated lettuce, providing hope that the outbreak may finally come to an end.

The Food and Drug Administration released an update confirming that all production and distribution of romaine lettuce from the Yuma region had halted; the final date of harvest was April 16. Since romaine lettuce has a 21-day shelf life, the FDA said, “It is unlikely that any romaine lettuce from the Yuma growing region is still available.”

Of course, “unlikely” is not a complete vote of confidence that no additional illnesses will arise, but it seems promising.

The current total case count is 172 illnesses in 32 states. There has been one death linked to the outbreak, along with 75 hospitalizations and 20 cases of hemolytic-uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure.

As for the additional illnesses that surfaced between the May 9 and May 16 updates, the CDC has a likely explanation. They claim that these victims were initially infected when contaminated lettuce “was likely still available in stores, restaurants, and in peoples’ homes.” 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.

The CDC has removed its instructions to throw away romaine lettuce if you cannot confirm its area of production. Romaine lettuce is probably safe to buy from stores and restaurants without risking E. coli from the outbreak.

The specific source of the bacteria has yet to be found, and the FDA investigation is ongoing. Multiple lawsuits have been filed against restaurants and suppliers by the law firm Marler Clark, which specializes in foodborne illness cases. The goal of these lawsuits, according to the firm’s managing partner Bill Marler, is to “get to the bottom of where the contamination occurred.”

The Yuma region of Arizona supplies “virtually all lettuce sold in [the United States] during the winter months,” according to The Washington Post. During the outbreak, production shifted to California.

Some say this outbreak has worsened so severely that it parallels some of the world’s biggest food poisoning scares.


E. coli Recall Expands "Out of Caution" to Include Cauliflower and Even More Lettuce

Adam Bros. Farming, Inc. launched a voluntary recall, which also includes red leaf lettuce and green leaf lettuce.

Last week, the Food and Drug Administration announced they had tracked down the source of this year&aposs third E. coli outbreak fueled by romaine lettuce, which was first announced just before Thanksgiving. While federal investigators said they’re still determining which companies are involved, Adam Bros. Farms—the farm where investigators discovered traces of E. coli in an irrigation pond—has launched a new voluntary recall on even more of its produce "out of an abundance of caution."

California-based Adam Bros. Farming, Inc. released a statement last week that it would launch a voluntary recall which includes whole heads of cauliflower, red leaf lettuce, and green leaf lettuce, all harvested from November 27 to November 30. You can view the complete list of recalled products here.

The company has made it clear that none of these items have tested positive for E. coli, but since these veggies were grown near the tainted water source and potentially came in contact with it after harvesting, the farm is working with the FDA to launch this voluntary recall. However, none of the filtered or treated water has tested positive for E. coli contamination yet.

Per the latest count from the FDA, nearly 60 people have suffered from E. coli poisoning in 16 different states. There have been no reports of illness connected to cauliflower or any other non-romaine lettuce yet.

The FDA says that more illnesses related to this E. coli outbreak could be reported in the near future. They’re asking shoppers to continue avoiding romaine if they can&apost identify its origin, and has blacklisted romaine from Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Barbara counties. Since this outbreak began, the FDA has asked romaine growers to start labeling their products with a harvest date and location.

“If it does not have this information, you should not eat or use it,” the FDA writes in their release.
