NEW JERSEY – When you’re at the Thanksgiving table, and someone is serving salad, you should toss it out if it has romaine lettuce in it, the Centers for Disease Control said.
There have been 32 cases of e coli reported in 11 states, the CDC reported. The illnesses began anywhere from Oct. 8 to Oct. 31. It has not yet been fatal, but 13 people have been hospitalized. Additionally, the Public Health Agency of Canada has identified 18 cases in Ontario and Quebec.
These cases all seem to be linked to romaine lettuce consumption. However, there was no common source of the lettuce, so the CDC said to throw out all of it.
