General Information: The latest release from the CDC has 25 additional illnesses reported since the last update on May 16th. People typically get sick from E. coli in 2-8 days after swallowing the germ. The average time it takes to get reported to the CDC is two to three weeks after becoming ill. The reported illness period has been adjusted to cover March 13th to May 12th. The CDC has named the Yuma, AZ region as the source of the outbreak, but has been unable to link a common grower, distributor or brand. The CDC still has NOT issued a recall at this time. As of May 2, the Arizona Department of Agriculture has confirmed that the Yuma growing region is no longer producing or distributing romaine. It is likely that there is no longer any affected romaine in the supply chain due to its 21-day shelf life.

Recap Summary: As of April 13, the CDC has reported a multi-state outbreak of E. coli related illnesses that have been associated with chopped romaine from the Yuma, AZ growing region. Here is the associated info:

  • 197 people infected with E. coli have been reported across 35 states
