E.Coli Outbreak Expected to Worsen

In good news for salad lovers everywhere, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is now advising that it is safe to crunch into romaine lettuce once again.

The Center for Disease Control said 23 more cases have been reported in 13 states. The current outbreak has been traced to the Yuma, Arizona, growing region, the source of virtually all lettuce sold in this country during the winter months.

Twenty-three more people fell ill since the last update on May 9, bringing the total to 172 people from 32 states, the CDC said on Wednesday.

The FDA and the CDC used new genome sequencing technology to link infections to the same potent strain of E.coli that was previously reported. Now, the CDC is warning consumers not to buy or eat romaine lettuce at a grocery store or restaurant unless you can confirm it's not from the Yuma, Arizona area. Product labels often do not identify growing regions; so, throw out any romaine lettuce if you're uncertain about where it was grown. And 75 people have been sick enough to need hospitalization.

As quarterback Dak Prescott's No. 1 option last season, Bryant finished with just 69 receptions for 838 yards and six touchdowns. The Baltimore Ravens extended an offer to Bryant, who was released on April 13 after spending eight seasons with the Cowboys.

Health officials say almost two dozen more cases of a food poisoning outbreak linked to romaine lettuce grown in Arizona have been reported.

The person became ill about three weeks ago and has recovered, said Phil Rooney, a spokesman for the Douglas County Health Department.

In scale, this outbreak is approaching that of the 2006 baby spinach E. coli outbreak that sickened more than 200 people and killed five. The CDC also noted that 64 people have been hospitalized.
