No common supplier distributor, or retailer of leafy greens has been identified as a possible source of this outbreak. Neither the CDC nor Canadian health officials have provided any information on where the romaine lettuce potentially involved in the illnesses was grown or processed, so for now, consumers should assume that any romaine lettuce, even when sold in bags and packages, could possibly be contaminated, Rogers said. CDC continues to work with regulatory partners in several states, at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to identify the source. In the United States, there are 24 confirmed victims across 15 states. Illnesses began on dates ranging from November 15, 2017 to December 12, 2017.
The outbreak is responsible for 66 infections and two deaths in the two countries. People usually get sick from E. coli O157:H7 three to four days after eating food contaminated with the germ. The five hospitalized are in the United States with the one death in the USA and one in Canada.
