Romaine  lettuce is not safe to eat | CDC has warned American consumers



Romaine Lettuce is unsafe to eat in any form, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a food security warning in response to a new outbreak of diseases due to a particularly dangerous type of E. coli bacteria on Tuesday.

CDC told consumers that they would throw any roman Romaine lettuce is not safe to eat | CDC has warned American consumers already purchased. Restaurants should not serve it, shops should not sell it, and people should not buy it, it does not matter where or where the salad was grown. It does not matter that it is chopped, part of the whole head or mixture.

Uncommonly widespread warning, Americans were released two days before sitting for a Thanksgiving dinner, indicating the origins of bacterial contamination and uncertainties about the border. The CDC is not claiming that all romance contains dangerous bacteria - millions of popular salad recipients should be kept in mind - but the investigators do not know where, when, or how pollution occurred.

Thus all Romaine is questionable.

CDC said that 32 people in 11 states have become ill with eating contaminated roman 13 of them have been admitted to the hospital, in which one patient is suffering as a kidney failure. Canada's Public Health Agency has reported that 18 people have been infected with the same tension as E. coli. In Ontario and Quebec

No deaths have been reported.

CDC recommends that Romaine Lettuce be contaminated and should be thrown off.
CDC said in the food security warning issued on Tuesday afternoon, "Consumers who have some type of roman lettuce in their house should not eat and throw them, even if some of them have been eaten and no one is ill . "

"This advice includes all types or uses of Romaine salad, such as the whole head of roman, the heart of the Romans, and the bars and precise salad bars and salad mixture which includes romaine, including romaine, spring mix and Caesar salad," CDC said. "If you do not know whether salad is Roman or if there is a roman in the salad mixture, do not eat it and throw it out."

The agency advised consumers to salad and clean the salads where the salad was stored. According to the CDC, people usually e. In the three or four days of contaminated salad, they become ill.

Food and Drug Administration's Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said that Thanksgiving holiday reduced weight on federal officials' minds because they prepared food warnings.

Gottlib said, "I feel that pressure was increased to try to communicate with the public more importantly, because we know that people are going to sit for the holiday meals."

But he acknowledged that it is "disappointing and unfortunate" that the warning should be so broad, in which all Roman salads are involved. He said that federal agencies and industry are trying to improve trackback techniques to reduce sources of outbreak. "We should be able to get more accurate information on consumers rather than these general alerts, what they should not eat.

California has the highest number of illnesses, with 10, seven with Michigan, three with New Jersey, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and New York each, and the rest are remaining in Connecticut, Maryland, Ohio and Wisconsin.

The Food and Drug Administration issued a statement saying that it is making a special effort to investigate Roman for pollution all over the country.

"The quick and aggressive steps that we are taking today are aimed at ensuring that we reduce the risks to consumers, and to help people protect themselves and their families from the outbreak of this foodborne illness. Forget this emerging outbreak. Gottlib said, this Thanksgiving is especially important before the holidays, when people will be sitting for family food.

Five people were killed in the recent major outbreaks from polluted Roman, which lasted from March to June this year, and 210 cases were reported in 36 states. The outbreak was growing in Yuma, Ariz, area, but investigators never definitively determined the exact source. Gottlib said that the canal water used by several major suspects is contaminated.


The latest outbreak does not seem to be related to Yuma outbreaks. Instead, this outbreak involves a stress of e coli, in which there is the same genetic fingerprint, which caused illness in both the United States and Canada last year. Canada specifically linked its cases to Roman Lettus, though American investigators said that only the origin was in leafy deer. Once again, the exact origin was never determined. That outbreak was announced in January.

The first disease of the outbreak was recorded on October 6. Normally there is a delay in the reporting of diseases related to E. coli outbreaks, and the CDC said that since the early days of November the cases have not been logged by the health authorities.

But it is striking that this year's outbreak comes with almost fingerprint at the same time and similar. The Canadian Health Agency noted that "it suggests that pollution can be a reprocessed source.

"If there is a 2017 outbreak and this outbreak is a genetic match, then the FDA should give an incredible window where the outbreak where lettuce was grown, so they are able to triangle back in a particular area," Chief Food Security lawyer Bill Marler .

He said that his firm had received many calls from the people last month that he was suffering from E. coli, but he did not know that it could be linked to a widespread outbreak.

Marker said, "I have to hire more lawyers.

E. coli is the bacteria found in animal intestines. It can contaminate various types of agricultural products. People can be infected with E. coli and can not tell any symptoms. People who are ill with E. coli usually recover within 5 to 10 days without complications. Through direct contact, the disease can spread from person to person.


All three outbreaks - presently, due to the pollution of E. coli tension, which is known as one-O 157: H7, from Yuma one year and from last year. This creates a leech poisoning that in severe cases hemolytic uremic syndrome can be a type of kidney failure.

Symptoms of this tension include severe stomach cramps, bloody diarrhea and vomiting. Someone suspects that they have been infected, they should see the doctor and the matter should be reported to the local health department.

By the 1990s, most of the e-coli cases in humans came from contaminated hamburger food. In recent years, after improvement in the livestock industry, outbreaks are often associated with leafy buck.

The FDA's Gottlib said that a clear increase in outbreaks could be misleading. In the past food is not less safe than today, he said:

"It seems that there is more anger. What is happening is that we are getting better in identifying outbreaks.
