You can eat romaine again; CDC: tainted lettuce likely gone

Who doesn't? There is no need to freak out about the recent E. coli outbreak tied to romaine lettuce from Yuma, Arizona.

"Romaine lettuce from the Yuma growing region is past its shelf life and is probably no longer being sold in stores or served in restaurants", the CDC said in a news release.

The last shipments from the Yuma growing region were harvested on April 16.

With the grow season over in the region, however, the FDA said that it is unlikely that any contaminated lettuce would still be available in stores or restaurants.

Romaine lettuce, which is behind the recent E. coli outbreak, is now safe to eat again, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That means the contaminated lettuce is now past its 21-day shelf life.

Ill people range in age from 1 to 88 years, with a median age of 29.

Nationwide, 23 more people and three more states were added to the list of confirmed cases; putting the total number of incidents in the U.S. At 172 since the outbreak was first reported on April 10.

The outbreak caused by E. coli in lettuce is approaching the scale of the 2006 outbreak caused by E. coli in baby spinach, which infected over 200 people and killed five.

Iowa and OR also reported their first lettuce-related E. coli cases in the past week. More than 75 people have been hospitalized including cases of 20 kidney failure in people. Those states include Colorado, Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin. The one death was in California.

Attorneys Fred Pritzker and Brendan Flaherty represent people sickened with E. coli O157:H7 infections and HUS.

"I'm the Mueller of the E. coli outbreak", Marler says.
