American growers and suppliers are only starting to take care of the precipitation of an E. coli outbreak in the case of Roma lettuce, which has a sick of 32 people in 11 states.
The US Disease Control and Prevention Action Centers last week urged Americans not to eat any Romaine salad because no single growers, supplier, distributor or brand had been identified. The Commissioner for Food and Drug Administration Scott Gottlieb has since said that the infected salad originally originated from California.
The advisory issued November 20-Two days before Thanksgiving is likely to cause "a huge loss" for the industry, Michael Droke, working in agriculture and cooperation law, told Westernfarmpress.com.
Meanwhile, CDC sent an update on the majority of outbreaks of E. coli O157: H7 infections linked to romarin lettuce.
The CDC and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) now advise American consumers not to eat, and retailers and restaurants do not serve or sell any Romaine salad from Central Coastal-growing regions in northern and central California. This updated recommendation comes as CDC, FDA, Health Care Officer in several states, and Canada continues to investigate a multiple-term outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli O157: H7 diseases associated with Romarin salts.
If you do not know where your romaine salad is from, do not eat it. Romain salad is marked with location information per region. It may take some time before these labels are available.
Romain salad harvested from regions outside the central coastal areas of northern and central California is not linked to this E. coli O157: H7 outbreak. Romain salad is grown in a greenhouse or hydroponic is also not associated with this eruption.
This survey is underway, and CDC will provide more information when it becomes available.
