Heads Up! currently a E-coli outbreak ongoing with Romaine lettuce
Be cautious
Americans may want to push back their New Year's resolutions to eat more leafy greens -- romaine lettuce has been tied to an E. coli outbreak in Canada and similar cases have been seen in the U.S.

Since November 2017, 58 cases of E. coli infection have been reported in the U.S. and Canada. Of those cases, 17 occurred in the U.S. According to Consumer Reports, five Americans have been hospitalized and one has died.

E. coli infections have been reported in California, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Vermont and Washington.

Consumer Reports has advised Americans to stop eating romaine lettuce until further notice, urging consumers to avoid the lettuce until the cause of the outbreak has been 100% confirmed and products get removed from shelves. "Even though we can't say with 100% certainty that romaine lettuce is the cause of the E. coli outbreak in the U.S., a greater degree of caution is appropriate given that romaine lettuce is almost always consumed raw," explained the director of food safety and research at Consumer Reports.
