Coli outbreak expands; still no source identified

Lab technician extracts DNA for whole genome sequencing at the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment's Molecular Science Laboratory in Denver

" We have lots of lines of proof recommending to us today that of these health problems are linked in some way through romaine grown in the Yuma area [of Arizona]", Matthew Wise, the CDC deputy branch chief for Outbreak Response, stated throughout a Friday news rundown.

Romaine lettuce grows near Soledad, California, U.S., May 3, 2017. "Many people get diarrhea [frequently bloody], serious stomach cramps and throwing up", inning accordance with the CDC.

Nationwide, 46 people have been hospitalized, including 10 with kidney failure, which is an unusually high number of hospitalizations, according to health officials.

The CDC says no deaths attributed to the outbreak have been reported.

According to the Associated Press, health officials said Friday the outbreak has now spread to Mississippi, Tennessee and Wisconsin.

Usually, illness sets in "an average of three to four days after swallowing the germ". Concerns regarding the Arizona-based romaine lettuce outbreak first surfaced on April 10, when a few states, the CDC, the FDA and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced a multistate outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli O157:H7 infections.

A nation-wide outbreak of E.coli that is linked to romaine lettuce has landed in Georgia.

The 9th Circuit also said refusing to dismiss the case "prevents the parties from manipulating" the precedent set by the judge. According to Slater, he left his camera equipment on the ground and the monkey picked it up and snapped the photo.

Investigators have not yet identified a grower, supplier, distributor or brand responsible for the outbreak, the CDC said, although it has been traced to the Yuma, Arizona, region.

Speaking at the news briefing, he stressed that other area farms could also be affected. "We are continuing to examine all possibilities, including that contamination may have occurred along the growing, harvesting, packaging and distribution chain before reaching the Alaskan correctional facility", Stic Harris, DVM, MPH, director of the FDA's Coordinated Outbreak Response and Evaluation Network, said during the call.

A person answering the phone at Harrison Farms hung up twice on a Washington Post reporter after she identified herself as a member of the media. People with romaine products at home should throw them away. Because the growing season in the Yuma region is at its end, the farm is not growing any lettuce at this time.

The specific strain of E. coli, Shiga-toxin type two or STX2, has historically resulted in a higher number of hospitalized victims.

This is now the largest E. coli O157:H7 HUS outbreak since 2006 in the United States. The agency expanded its warning from just chopped romaine to any and all forms of the lettuce - whole romaine, romaine in mixed salads, etc.
