  • Bacterial colonies

Instead, they should be thrown away, even if some of it has already been eaten and no signs of illness have materialized.

People in the previous outbreak were infected with a different DNA fingerprint of E. coli O157:H7 bacteria.

Prior to this update, the New Jersey Department of Health announced that they were in the process of investigating 8 E. coli infections in 4 counties-Somerset, Hunterdon, Middlesex, and Warren.

The CDC has said these complications are is more common older adults, young children and those with weakened immune systems. "If you do get sick, see your doctor as soon as possible". Officials suspected a restaurant chain. "State and local public health officials are interviewing ill people to determine what they ate and other exposures in the week before their illness started".


The lettuce that may be linked to this outbreak apparently came from the Yuma, Arizona growing region.

And they are warning everyone to toss out any romaine lettuce they have in the fridge. If the retailer can't confirm it is not from Yuma, Arizona, do not eat it. Despite the fact that 7 U.S. states have been affected by E. Coli, so far, only New Jersey seems to concentrate most of the cases with 6 confirmed E. Coil infections. However, U.S. health officials stopped short of naming romaine lettuce, instead saying the outbreak was "likely" connected to "leafy greens". No specific growers or vendors of the lettuce in question have been identified yet. That includes salads and salad mixes that contain romaine lettuce. Sixty-nine percent of ill people are female.

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 symptoms of HUS include little urine output, lethargy, pale skin, easy bruising, and a skin rash.

A map of the outbreak shows that people have been sickened in seven states across a wide geographical area.
