Calif. death reported in romaine lettuce E. coli outbreak

Calif. death reported in romaine lettuce E. coli outbreak

Health officials say that the awful trend has been caused by romaine lettuce grown out of Yuma, Arizona, which happens to provide most of the romaine lettuce sold in the winter throughout the US.

The overall given on Wednesday is up 23 cases from the C.D.C.'s very last upgrade on April 27, and Kentucky, Massachusetts and Utah reported their first scenarios. CDC's warning applies to whole heads and hearts of romaine, chopped romaine, baby romaine, organic romaine, and salads and salad mixes containing romaine lettuce.

Former Trump Aide Meets With Mueller After Cursing Russia Probe
Others, including members of Trump's legal team, said the Nixon case refers to document production, not physical testimony. In a second tweet, Trump said: "It would seem very hard to obstruct justice for a crime that never happened".

The most recent of the illnesses began on April 21. One Arizona farm has been linked to E. coli in whole head romaine, but at least two dozen locations are under investigation. Since 14 people have developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, that rate is nearly 14%, which is higher than the typical rate of 5 to 10% for most E. coli O157:H7 outbreaks. The agency is investigating dozens of other fields as potential sources of the chopped romaine lettuce.

In the United States, romaine harvesting usually shifts north to California at this time of year, but federal officials have said they can't guarantee there are no more products now coming out of the Yuma growing region.

But how exactly does E. coli kill? "And it just doesn't seem to be getting there", he said. Fourteen of the infected patients have been hospitalized with kidney failure. Symptoms of HUS include little urine output, lethargy, pale skin, easy bruising, and bleeding from the nose or mouth. In addition, since an E. coli infection causes diarrhea, it can also cause a tear (perforation) in the colon, which allows fecal matter to leak into the body, and this could also be deadly, he said. The CDC advises anyone with these symptoms to seek medical attention as E. coli infection is typically diagnosed via a stool sample.

Trump Says Mueller's Leaked Questions Don't Involve Collusion. (Actually, They Do.)
