Here's why you may want to avoid eating romaine lettuce

Conrad Doyle | 12 January, 2018, 21:53

The new report warns that an outbreak of E. coli among 58 people over the past seven weeks in the USA and Canada has been traced backed to romaine lettuce by Canadian health officials.

The CDC says because the E. coli strains in both countries are genetically related, the ill people likely share "a common source of infection". Two people have died in the US and Canada, according Consumer Reports.

If you're anxious about getting sick, it may be safest to heed the advice of Public Health Canada and Consumer Reports by avoiding romaine lettuce until a cause of contamination for the outbreak is identified.

Severe cases can lead to hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a type of kidney failure.

Plenty of people are trying to shed some pounds in the New Year and for many of us that includes salads - lots and lots of salads. "There has also been one death in Canada".

Anyone can get debilitated if infected with E. coli, however youthful children, the elderly and the immune-compromised are at greater hazard. S. investigators are still confirming a direct link with the Canadian E.coli cases. The strain of bacteria has been identified as shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7, which can cause stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting.

Neither the USA nor Canadian health officials have provided information on where the suspect romaine lettuce was grown or processed.

Food poisoning that appears connected to E. coli has struck 17 people in the United States.

"[The CDC and FDA are] being very conservative and cautious about this, but for consumers it's a very simple thing to do to buy another kind of leafy green until more is known about the risk", she said.

Officials said they are following the updates from the CFIA and PHAC and that Sobeys will continue to stay close to the investigation as further updates are released. These items can be contaminated in the field, during harvest, during transport, and during processing.
