"We have many lines of evidence suggesting to us right now that all of these illnesses are connected in some way through romaine grown in the Yuma region [of Arizona]", Matthew Wise, the CDC deputy branch chief for outbreak response, said recently.

64 people have been hospitalized, including 17 people who have developed a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome.

The sick count in the states not mentioned above: Alaska and Arizona, eight each; Georgia, five; MI and NY, four each; OH and MA, three each; Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois and Wisconsin, two each; Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah and Virginia, one each. The most cases have been reported in California (30), followed by Pennsylvania (20) and Idaho (11).

The first illnesses occurred in March, and the most recent began on April 25, the CDC said.

In 2006, a STX2-only E. coli outbreak from spinach grown in Salinas, Calif., sickened more than 200 people, Tauxe said.

State and local health officials continue to interview ill people to ask about the foods they ate and other exposures they had before they became ill.

Tonnes of chocolate spills onto highway
Inclement weather can render roads unsafe to drive on, but it turns out spilled chocolate can be just as much of an inconvenience. Officials say the cooling chocolate will be a worse road hazard than snow, and it could be hours before the road is usable again.


One death was reported from California, which was included in the May 2 update. CDC is advising consumers not to eat or buy romaine lettuce if they do not know where it was grown.

Florida, Minnesota, North Dakota and Texas have joined the list of states reporting at least one E. coli illness linked to the outbreak.

In the seventh update since CDC's initial public announcement of the outbreak, the agency continues to say it is romaine lettuce from the Yuma, AZ, growing area that "could make people sick".

However, others like the 0157:H7, also referred to as an STEC strain, cause bloody diarrhea, painful abdominal cramps, and vomiting.

The growing season at that farm has ended, and the shelf life of the lettuce from there has passed.

This advice includes whole heads and hearts of romaine, chopped romaine, baby romaine, organic romaine, and salads and salad mixes containing romaine lettuce. However, E. coliO157 infections sometimes lead to HUS.
