As of this week, people in 29 states have fallen ill from consuming tainted lettuce traced to the Yuma, Arizona, region, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Wednesday.

Almost 150 people in 29 states - including four states reporting cases for the first time - have become sick from an E. coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce.

"Do not eat or buy romaine lettuce unless you can confirm it is not from the Yuma growing region". Symptoms of the most recent illnesses reported began April 25.

Sixty-four people have been hospitalized, the CDC said, and 17 of those have developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a form of kidney failure. Pennsylvania has reported the second most cases - 20.

At the moment, it's still unclear whether the Canadians in question picked up the E.Coli in Canada or U.S, as two of the six Canadians traveled to the U.S and ate romaine lettuce there prior to getting infected.

This is the biggest Shiga-toxin producing E. coli outbreak since a 2006 outbreak linked to spinach grown in the Salinas Valley in California, Wise said.

Scientists have identified a link to romaine lettuce grown in the Yuma, Arizona region. They include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting. With supportive treatment, most people recover in a matter of five to seven days.

The agency says if it is determined that contaminated romaine lettuce is in the Canadian market, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency will recall the product as required.

Contaminated lettuce could still be in homes, stores, and restaurants since romaine lettuce has a shelf life of several weeks, the CDC noted, adding that its advice applies to whole heads and hearts of Romaine, chopped romaine, baby romaine, organic romaine, and salads and salad mixes containing romaine lettuce.
