“Surveillance will be able to confirm the source as food histories are taken of all reported confirmed gastroenteritis, including E. coli.”. Sixty-six percent of ill people are female.

People with symptoms of an E. coli infection, such as severe stomach cramps, diarrhea (often bloody), and vomiting, and think you might have gotten sick from eating romaine lettuce, should talk to their doctor and report their illness to the health department.

The Public Health Agency of Canada said the 18 people who fell ill in connection to the outbreak in Canada reported their cases between mid-October and early November, and one complained of suffering a severe complication related to it.

Three major grocery chains are pulling romaine lettuce from their Canadian stores, in response to a public health warning about possible E. coli contamination. Of those, one patient developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure.

The public health agency is working with the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the United States Food and Drug Administration to investigate the outbreak.

"When there are outbreaks, certain things have been implicated only to find out years later the epidemiology evidence wasn't sound or secure", he said. This percentage is significantly higher than results from a survey [PDF - 787 KB] of healthy people in which 47% reported eating romaine lettuce in the week before they were interviewed.

Health authorities in Canada and the United States are telling people to throw out their romaine lettuce because of a recent E. Coli outbreak.

Restaurants and retailers should not serve or sell any romaine lettuce, including salads and salad mixes containing romaine. People in the spring outbreak were infected with E. coli O157:H7 bacteria with a different DNA fingerprint.

CDC is advising that USA consumers not eat any romaine lettuce, and retailers and restaurants not serve or sell any, until we learn more about the outbreak. At this time, no common grower, supplier, distributor, or brand of romaine lettuce has been identified.
