Fourteen more people have gotten sick from romaine lettuce tainted with E. coli, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced on Friday, bringing the outbreak's total number of cases to almost 100.
The government now has reports of 98 people who got sick in 22 states, including Wisconsin. Ten of those hospitalized have reported a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome.
The CDC has also confirmed that the E. coli O157:H7 found in the 8 prisoners is a genetic match to the other 90 ill in the other 21 states: Alaska (8), Arizona (5), California (16), Colorado (2), CT (2), Georgia (1), Idaho (10), IL (1), Louisiana (1), MI (3), MS (1), Missouri (1), Montana (8), New Jersey (7), NY (2), OH (3), Pennsylvania (18), South Dakota (1), Tennessee (1), Virginia (1), Washington (5), and Wisconsin (1).
No deaths have been reported.
And while the tainted romaine lettuce is believed to have actually stemmed from the Yuma area, "item labels frequently do not determine growing areas; so toss out any romaine lettuce if you're unsure about where it was grown", the company stated in its caution.
"The FDA recommends that consumers ask grocers, restaurants, and other food service establishments where their romaine lettuce originated, and avoid any romaine lettuce, whether chopped, whole head or hearts, that originated from the Yuma growing region".
Erring on the side of caution, Wise said: "People should not be eating any type of romaine lettuce".
Fourteen more ill persons have been added to this outbreak since the last update two days ago.
