Outbreak of E. Coli Infections Linked to Romaine Lettuce

The CDC is advising that U.S. consumers not eat any romaine lettuce, and retailers and restaurants not serve or sell any, until we learn more about the outbreak. This investigation is ongoing and the advice will be updated as more information is available.

              - Consumers who have any type of romaine lettuce in their home should not eat it and should throw it away, even if some of it was eaten and no one has gotten sick.
              - â€‹Restaurants and retailers should not serve or sell any romaine lettuce, including salads and salad mixes containing romaine.                                                                                                                                              - Take action if you have symptoms of an E. coli infection. Symptoms include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea, and vomiting. Some people may also have a fever.
