For the time being no common grower, supplier, brand or distributor has been identified for this outbreak.

"Consumer Reports is making this recommendation given the potentially fatal consequences of E. coli, the fact that there are still several unknowns about this outbreak, and that no type of romaine has been ruled definitively safe by government officials", Consumer Reports Director of Food Safety Research and Testing James E. Rogers, Ph.D., said.

Consumers who purchased romaine lettuce at a grocery store or eat the same at any restaurant should confirm that it is not the chopped romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona growing region.

"A packaged romaine lettuce that's chopped, I'd recommend that you either take it back to the store or throw it out, do not consume it", Phillips said.

Montana is the latest state to have confirmed cases of E. Coli in a multi-state outbreak linked to chopped romaine lettuce sourced from Yuma, Arizona.

"Individuals with this infection usually get better within about 5 to 7 days, however some illnesses can be serious or even life-threatening", Dr. Shereef Elnahal, commissioner of the state Department of Health, said in a statement.


Twenty-two of those affected had to be hospitalized in the current outbreak, including three with kidney failure, CR reported.

"If you can not confirm the source of the romaine lettuce, do not buy it or eat it", the CDC said.

The people who are in the age range from 12 years to 84 years, with an average age of 29. Most people with a E. coli O157 infection start feeling sick 3 to 4 days after eating or drinking something that contains the bacteria.

Information collected to date indicates that chopped romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona growing region could be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7 and could make people sick.

Symptoms include bloody diarrhea, decreased urination or presence of blood in the urine, seizures, fatigue, bleeding from the nose and mouth, pallor, abdominal pain, vomiting, swelling, high blood pressure, and fever. However, illnesses can start anywhere from 1 to 10 days after exposure.
