The FDA and CDC are warning people to throw out any Romaine they have in their house. 53 people in at least 16 states have been poisoned due to the outbreak.
"A report issued Wednesday by the CDC said 31 people have been hospitalized since consumers started reporting they were sick on March 13. Five people have developed a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome. No deaths have been reported.
No recall has been issued as of Thursday because the CDC has been unable to identify a specific grower, supplier, distributor or brand responsible for the contaminated lettuce. But officials warned consumers to avoid and throw out any pre-cut romaine lettuce from the region, "even if some of it was eaten and no one has gotten sick."'
Please follow all protocols that come out with this order. Throw out any lettuce that you have in your house now, and wait for the all clear from the national boards.
