The CDC advises anyone with these symptoms to seek medical attention as E. coli infection is typically diagnosed via a stool sample. Most people reported eating a salad at a restaurant, and romaine lettuce was the only common ingredient identified among the salads eaten. The CDC reports 69 percent of those infected are women, and that 22 have been hospitalized and three have suffered from a type of kidney failure.

"If you can not confirm the source of the romaine lettuce, do not buy it or eat it", the CDC said. The restaurants reported using bagged, chopped romaine lettuce to make salads.

However, preliminary information indicates that the chopped romaine lettuce was from the Yuma, Arizona growing region. As the number of people being infected by the disease has been increasing, health officials raised concerns about the consumption of the vegetable as no particular brand of lettuce has been identified so far.

One Pennsylvania company, Fresh Foods Manufacturing, announced on Saturday a voluntary recall of 8,757 pounds of retail salad products. Gieraltowski says the earlier outbreak was never conclusively linked to romaine (although Canadian investigators of the same outbreak issued a romaine recall based on their findings).

The farms in the Yuma, Arizona region supplies romaine lettuce to the country during March through November of each year. At this time, ill people are not reporting whole heads or hearts of romaine. Symptoms of this complication include abdominal pain, lethargy, decreased urination, pallor, and small unexplained bruises or bleeding. "Anyone experiencing symptoms of this illness should see a healthcare provider".

States that have reported people infected with the E. coli strain include Washington, Idaho, Missouri, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and MI. "If you do not know if the lettuce is romaine, do not eat it and throw it away".
