Coli outbreak traced to romaine lettuce

States that have reported people infected with the E. coli strain include Washington, Idaho, Missouri, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and MI.

So far, 35 cases of E. Coli illness in 11 states have been reported and linked to the outbreak.

The federal response to this outbreak stands in contrast to the E. coli outbreak this past winter, when investigators at the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration did not make definitive consumer recommendations. The reported illnesses occurred between March 22 and March 31, and 93% of the 28 people interviewed reported eating romaine lettuce (mainly from a restaurant) during the week that they became ill. No specific grower, supplier, distributors, or brand has been identified. People in the previous outbreak were infected with a different DNA fingerprint of E. coli O157:H7 bacteria.

One Pennsylvania company, Fresh Foods Manufacturing, announced on Saturday a voluntary recall of 8,757 pounds of retail salad products.
