CHECK YOUR FRIDGE: E. coli linked to romaine lettuce

  • Scientists have developed a patch that could help prevent unpleasant food poisoning by detecting harmful bacteria such

No deaths have been reported from this outbreak, although one of the hospitalized patients developed hemolytic uremic syndrome.

In a statement today, April 13, the N.J. Department of Health (DOH) said there are four confirmed cases in Hunterdon County, and one each in Monmouth, Sussex and Somerset counties. The site said there are nine salad factories that produce bagged lettuce and salad mixes and process over 2 million pounds of lettuce per day. An investigation points toward romaine lettuce originating from Arizona as the cause, but at this point no specific brand, grower, supplier, or distributor has been identified.

New Jersey has reported six cases, Idaho has reported four cases, Pennsylvania and CT have each reported two cases, and Washington, Missouri and OH have each reported one illness. Our E. coli lawyers have litigated E. coli and HUS cases stemming from outbreaks traced to ground beef, raw milk, lettuce, spinach, sprouts, and other food products.

Even though the first E. Coli cases have been registered on the USA territory in late March, only in April the situation has become more serious and was called an outbreak. "If you can not confirm the source of the Romaine lettuce", the CDC states, "do not buy it or eat it".




So far eight people in Idaho have become sick with E. coli infections, according to the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. Neither the CDC, FDA nor Public Health Agency of Canada found a single source for the Romaine lettuce in that outbreak, which sickened 25 and killed one on the USA side of the border. PulseNet, the national subtyping network, has linked 6 cases in New Jersey to the multistate outbreak. The age range of those infected ranges from 12 to 84 years old.

This outbreak started in New Jersey; seven people in that state were sickened in an outbreak last month.

Identifying a common source for E. coli infections is particularly challenging because individuals could potentially eat several meals spanning several places before experiencing symptoms and falling ill. The E. coli lawyers of Marler Clark have represented thousands of victims of E. coli and other foodborne illness infections and have recovered over $650 million for clients.
