Coli outbreak is over as new evidence points to tainted water

Coli outbreak is over as new evidence points to tainted water

There are cases in 36 states: Alabama (3) Alaska (8), Arkansas (1), Arizona (9), California (49), Colorado (3), CT (2), Florida (3), Georgia (5), Idaho (12), IL (2), Iowa (1), Kentucky (1), Louisiana (1), MA (4), MI (5), Minnesota (12), MS (1), Missouri (1), Montana (9), Nebraska (1), New Jersey (8), NY (11), North Carolina (1), North Dakota (3), OH (7), Oklahoma (1), OR (1), Pennsylvania (24), South Dakota (1), Tennessee (3), Texas (4), Utah (1), Virginia (1), Washington (8), and Wisconsin (3).

Although the government did not issue a recall, health officials were advising people to avoid eating romaine lettuce.

Dirty canal water appears to be the source of a national E.Coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce. These individuals ate whole-head romaine lettuce from the Yuma growing region.

"More work needs to be done to determine just how and why this strain of E. coli O157:H7 could have gotten into this body of water and how that led to contamination of romaine lettuce from multiple farms", said Dr. Scott Gottlieb, commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, in a statement.

The FDA, the CDC, and Arizona state officials continue to analyze samples from the Yuma region collected in early June and initial results are starting to become available.

"CDC laboratory testing identified the outbreak strain of E. coli O157:H7 in canal water samples taken from the Yuma growing region", the CDC said in the update. Ninety-six people required hospitalization and 5 people died-Arkansas, California, Minnesota (2), and NY. The vaccine was field-tested near the end of the major 2015 Ebola epidemic in West Africa, The New York Times reported.

Foodborne illness reportedly affects nearly 50 million people every year, equal to roughly one in six Americans. Some patients have filed a romaine lettuce E. coli lawsuit.

A mother who refused to accept doctors' opinions that her daughter was brain dead said the teen died on June 22 after surgery in New Jersey. Five people died from the outbreak strain. "The lettuce has a 21-day shelf life, which did help limit the case count". Fred Pritzker and his team of lawyers won $7.5 million for a client who suffered kidney failure after an E. coli infection in 2016.
