E. Coli reported in popular lettuce variety ahead of Holiday

Texas Take News Staff

Officials with the Centers for Disease Control have warned of an E. Cool contamination involving romaine lettuce just ahead of the Thanksgiving Holiday.

The agency said on Tuesday that the last illness was reported on October 31, 2018 and has sickened 32 people in 11 states. So far, no deaths have been reported.

The FDA is saying that there is not enough information to warrant a recall by any specific supplier, but consumers are being urged to take caution.

According to health officials, most E. Coli strains are not deadly, but they can cause harmful effects once ingested.
