According to the CDC, now romaine lettuce may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7 and could make people sick. Sobeys, Loblaw and Costco all say they have stopped selling romaine lettuce and salad mixes containing romaine.

In a rare, wide-ranging alert two days before Thanksgiving on Thursday, the CDC warned American consumers romaine lettuce was unsafe to eat in any form in response to a new outbreak of illnesses caused by a particularly risky type of E coli bacteria.

As CDC officials warn of a particularly unsafe strain of the bacteria, one business in St. Pete says they are profiting from the government's warning - saying their lettuce is totally safe.

This is due to the risk of the antibiotics potentially increasing the chance of hemolytic uremic syndrome, which is a type of kidney failure.

She is referring to romaine lettuce.

Thirty-two illnesses in 11 states have been linked to romaine. Public health officials have told the public to avoid eating romaine lettuce until further notice.

Cory Lunde, a spokesman for the Western Growers farm trade group, said the early onset date and industry shipment schedules pointed to romaine harvested in September from the central California coast, probably from the areas around Salinas or Santa Maria, as the most likely source.

"This tells us that the same strain of E. coli is causing illness in Canada and the USA as was seen in 2017 and it suggests there may be a reoccurring source of contamination", says the health agency. It has resulted in one death and 164 reported illnesses in 35 states.

An Ottawa resident is among the 18 infected by an E. coli outbreak in Ontario and Quebec, connected to the consumption of romaine lettuce. "I think what's happening is that we have better technology than ever before to link outbreaks of human illness to a common pathogen".

How's Canada?In Canada, Bamford Produce and Freshline Foods also made a statement regarding the E. coli outbreak. One person in California has died, and 63 people have been hospitalized.

In the latest announcement, CDC on November 20 advised that consumers should not eat any romaine lettuce because no common grower, supplier, distributor, or brand of romaine lettuce has been identified. Hazel Laws, has advised that all romaine lettuce stocks among retailers and wholesalers be pulled from the refrigerators and freezers and discarded, as a safety precaution.
