E. coli outbreak continues to grow with seven new cases

Romaine lettuce may be linked to E. coli infections Consumer Reports warns

Sadly, at least one of these cases has ended in death.

The Public Health Agency of Canada identified romaine lettuce as the source of the outbreak in Canada.

Which is why, although Canadian officials urged consumers to avoid romaine lettuce, US health authorities have not yet identified which type of "leafy greens" had led to the spread of the illness.

MI is on that list. People usually get sick from E. coli O157:H7 three to four days after eating food contaminated with the germ. One of the people sickened in Canada has died due to the infection. Investigators identified romaine lettuce as the source of the E. coli infections, but still have not determined the cause of the contamination. But infection with the O157 strain, which produces a shiga toxin, can cause severe abdominal cramps, bloody diarrhea and vomiting.

Brokerages Expect Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) to Announce $0.71 EPS
PRICE T ROWE ASSOCIATES INC /MD/ also announced decreased position in Archer-Daniels-Midland Company ( ADM ) during the quarter. In the case of Archer-Daniels-Midland Company (NYSE: ADM ), Zacks tracked 12 brokers to create the consensus EPS estimate.

Washing lettuce or any produce tainted with E. coli will not remove the bacteria, so if you're in doubt, just throw it out. It can also be spread via birds and rodents who may spread the infected fecal matter across farms.

In the United States, a total of 24 STEC O157:H7 infections have been reported from California (4), CT (2), IL (1), IN (2), Maryland (3), MI (1), Nebraska (1), New Hampshire (2), New Jersey (1), NY (1), OH (1), Pennsylvania (2), Vermont (1), Virginia (1), and Washington (1).

These critics believe that the CDC should have moved swiftly to warn consumers against romaine lettuce. The 17 USA cases were reported from November 15 to December 8, while Canada reported 49 cases. The group also refused to issue a warning against a particular food, saying, "Because we have not identified a source of the infections, CDC is unable to recommend whether USA residents should avoid a particular food". Five (56%) of nine ill people specifically reported eating romaine lettuce.

To protect against E. coli infection, health officials say people should thoroughly wash their hands, as well as counters, cutting boards and utensils.
