Health officials have tied the E. coli outbreak to romaine lettuce grown in Yuma, Arizona, which provides most of the romaine sold in the US during the winter.

The CDC estimates that around 5-10 percent of people with E. coli infections develop a complication known as hemolytic uremic syndrome, which affects the red blood cells and can cause kidney failure.

At least 23 new cases of E. coli have been reported since last Friday, CDC said, bringing the case total to 121.

But even if no one is eating tainted lettuce now, case counts may still rise because there's a lag in reporting.

California now leads the nation with 24 cases, followed by Pennsylvania with 20 and Idaho with 11.

The death was reported in California, but state and federal health officials did not provide any other details. The most recent case was reported on April 21.

Symptoms of E. coli include diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. In the salads, romaine lettuce was the only common ingredient. The restaurants reported using bagged, chopped romaine lettuce to make salads. More than a dozen locations are under scrutiny for possible links to the cases, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

State health officials are urging establishments and retailers to not sell or serve romaine lettuce, including chopped, whole head or hearts, that originate from Yuma.

Health officials have tied the E. coli outbreak to romaine lettuce grown in Yuma, Arizona, which provides most of the romaine sold in the USA during the winter. Ian Williams, chief of the CDC's Outbreak Response and Prevention Branch, "This bacteria can actually get inside the lettuce leaf".
