Consumer Reports Issues Warning Against Eating Romaine Lettuce


Although no suspicion has been raised about any tainted greens coming from Ventura County, concerns about the outbreak could cut into sales, which could have an impact on local growers. Leafy greens, including romaine lettuce, were the cause of E coli outbreaks in 2006, 2011, 2012 and 2013. The produce also comes from Mexico. There are two deaths in Canada and other 58 are those who get diagnosed with this. Other types of lettuce are grown in the county, as well, including 128 acres of head lettuce in 2015 and 789 acres of leaf lettuce that year. The CDC and FDA are continuing to investigate the details of this outbreak.

The CDC says it is unable to recommend whether people should avoid a particular food while the source of the outbreak is still under investigation. The statement did not specify where the lettuce may have originated.

Till when there will not proper confirmation about the same, all the shoppers and consumer are advised to stay away romaine lettuce.

China opposes USA 'finger pointing' at Pakistan
This was the strongest warning that has come from the U.S. president. "So that's one issue", the official said. China defends its "iron-brother" Pakistan on the issue of terrorism.

The CDC and Food and Drug Administration in the USA are investigating the E. coli infections in the US, but have not gone as far as to recommend that people in the USA avoid a particular food.

Until the CDC or the FDA issues a notice that romaine is indeed the culprit and information about where the romaine came from, those in the USA should still remain cautious. Those states are California, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Vermont and Washington.

Even though USA authorities can't say with 100 percent certainty that romaine lettuce caused the outbreak, Consumer Reports urged a "greater degree of caution", about the lettuce because it's usually consumed raw.

However, there are certain strains of E. coli that can cause illnesses such as the Shiga toxin-producing strain of E. coli, which is often heard of in relation to food-related outbreaks. Fruits and vegetables can become contaminated with E. coli when they come into contact with feces from infected animals, or with bacteria from raw meat, poultry or seafood. But at least one large USA organization has taken a preemptive step: Yesterday, Consumer Reports advised Americans to stop eating romaine lettuce until the cause of the outbreak is identified and products are removed from store shelves.

In Canada, 17 individuals were hospitalized and one has died.
