The Douglas County Health Department has confirmed one case of E. coli O157:H7 related to the outbreak in romaine lettuce grown in the Yuma, Arizona, region.

Please visit the CDC website for more information on this multi-state outbreak as well as recommendations to restaurants, retailers, and clinicians. And, because they only have a shelf life of 21 days, it's "unlikely" that any of that potentially contaminated lettuce is in your house or beloved lunch spots, the FDA says.

The officials said 75 (48 percent) have resulted in hospitalization in which 20 people have developed a unsafe form of kidney failure and one death has been reported due to an outbreak of E. coli. There was one death, in California. The CDC continues, "The last shipments of romaine lettuce from the Yuma growing region were harvested on April 16, 2018, and the harvest season is over". After all the investigation and supervision only, it would be permissible to continue eating romaine lettuce, till then it is not permitted to consume in the U.S. Restaurants were also advised not to serve romaine lettuce. "The most recent illnesses reported to CDC started when romaine lettuce from the Yuma growing region was probably still available in stores, restaurants, and in peoples' homes".

Wednesday's CDC news release upped the total illness count to 172 people across 32 different states. California, however, has the highest number of E. coli infection cases at 39 victims, followed by Pennsylvania at 21 victims.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it's safe to eat romaine lettuce again.

While the FDA and CDC haven't been able to trace the outbreak beyond just the general area of the Yuma region, food safety attorney Bill Marler is trying to track back via lawsuit.

The strain of E. coli present in the contaminated lettuce can cause vomiting, diarrhea and other symptoms.
