About E. Coli

Escherichia coli (E. coli) can cause serious illness in humans, including diarrhea, often with bloody stools.  Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS).  HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly.  This condition can lead to serious kidney damage and death.

Diagnosis of E. Coli Infection

Always put your health first. If you suspect that you have contracted E. coli or are experiencing food poisoning symptoms, contact your doctor. He or she can order a stool culture to confirm E. coli infection.

November 12, 2020: Investigation Launched by FDA & CDC for E. Coli Outbreak Linked to Recalled Romaine Lettuce

E. coli Single Head Romaine Lettuce Outbreak News – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), along with state and local partners, have announced an investigation into illnesses related to a multi-state outbreak of E.coli O157:H7 infections linked to romaine lettuce.

Tanimura & Antle, Inc. recalled its romaine lettuce product on November 6, 2020.

E. coli Single Head Romaine Lettuce Outbreak Information

On November 12, 2020, FDA and CDC officials announced an investigation into multiple E. coli illnesses reported across several states linked to single head romaine lettuce. The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) reported on November 6 that they collected a routine sample of romaine lettuce for testing. The sample came back positive for E. coli 0157:H7 and whole genome sequencing (WGS) analysis determined that the E. coli 0157:H7 present in the sample matched the strain that has caused the illnesses in this outbreak.

On November 6, 2020, Tanimura & Antle recalled its packaged single head romaine lettuce with a pack date of 10/15/2020 or 10/16/2020 due to the positive E. coli test from MDARD. The WGS test results later confirmed the connection. FDA and state partners are working with Tanimura & Antle to determine if additional romaine lettuce products should be recalled.

The FDA has recommended that consumers, restaurants, and retailers should not eat, sell or serve the recalled brand name romaine lettuce from Tanimura & Antle.
