The outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 tied to romaine lettuce appears to be over in Canada, but an investigation remains underway in the USA, health officials said Wednesday.

The CDC believes the USA and Canadian cases could be related, but isn't ready to issue a a specific warning about romaine.

The cases occurring in both the USA and Canada are of the same strain and appear to share a genetic fingerprint, CNN reported, but the CDC said this was not sufficient data to prove a link.

This story has been revised to update the illness count in Canada. There's no official government recall in the United States - yet. "Without knowing the source, it's hard to know", he said, per NBC News. People usually get sick from E. coli O157:H7 three to four days after eating food contaminated with the germ.

On Monday, Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro sent a letter to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), asking for more information about this outbreak.

Consumer Reports, on its own has issued statements warning people against eating romaine and have criticized the CDC and the US FDA for not warning people. The government issued an official warning and recalled all bagged and fresh stores of romaine lettuce, but the bacteria still managed to sicken at least 58 people so far in the us and Canada.

General Manager Dale Huss looks over a field of romaine lettuce with drip lines installed in it at Sea Mist Farms in Castroville Wednesday, May 22, 2013. "Right now the CDC is saying it could be other leafy greens, but until we have more corroborating evidence, we continue to think it prudent to avoid romaine lettuce for now".

The CDC suggest paying your doctor a visit if you are going through an episode of severe stomach cramps, diarrhea, vomiting or if you have a high fever. Attorney Fred Pritzker and his team recently won $7.5 million for young client whose kidneys failed because of hemolytic uremic syndrome after an E. coli O157:H7 infection. Lettuce can also be contaminated by bacteria during and after harvest. As of January 10, 2018, there were 42 cases of E. coli O157 illness reported in five eastern provinces: Ontario (8), Quebec (15), New Brunswick (5), Nova Scotia (1), and Newfoundland and Labrador (13). Romaine lettuce is mostly eaten raw and washing it or any produce tainted with E. coli will not remove the harmful bacteria.

Symptoms of E. coli typically begin two to eight days after consuming the bacteria.
