Iowa, Nebraska and OR newly joined the list of 39 states that have reported illnesses linked to romaine lettuce.

23 more people from 3 additional states have become sick; however, it takes 2-3 weeks from when a person becomes ill with E. Coli and when the illness is reported to the CDC so that number is expected to increase. It is unlikely that any romaine lettuce from the Yuma growing region is still available in people's homes, stores, or restaurants due to its 21-day shelf life.

The E. Coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce grown in the Yuma, Arizona region may be ending.

According to the DHS website, nationwide, 149 people from 29 states have been infected.

In April, the CDC warned Americans to toss out any romaine lettuce they might have bought in stores.

All the cases had been linked to lettuce that came from the Yuma, Arizona growing region. Of the 157 cases reported with good information, 75 (48 percent) have resulted in hospitalization, and 20 people have developed a unsafe form of kidney failure.

So far there has only been one death recorded, in California.

The outbreak has been caused by a particularly virulent strain of E. coli O157:H7.

While most strains of the bacteria E. coli are harmless, others can cause serious illness.

The Food and Drug Administration has been trying to discover exactly where and when the romaine involved in this latest outbreak was contaminated. If you do not know if the lettuce is romaine, do not eat it. One farm in Yuma has been identified as the source of the lettuce that sickened eight prisoners in Alaska, but FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb revealed Wednesday evening a bit of how complicated the case.
