The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Thursday that an additional nine people have potentially been infected by the multistate outbreak of E. coli related to romaine lettuce. Reuters reports the number of people who have reported infections from 15 states has now risen to 52. Nineteen people have been hospitalized, two of whom have developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure. No deaths have been reported. Evidence collected by the CDC indicates that romaine lettuce coming from the coastal growing regions of northern and central California is a likely source of the outbreak. The agency continues to advise against the consumption and sale of romaine lettuce harvested from these regions.
