Federal health officials reported seven additional cases of E. coli illness Wednesday in a deadly E. coli outbreak that has now struck 15 USA states. Most people recover from the illness in five to seven days but some develop a severe illness called hemolytic uremic syndrome, which can be fatal. Because CDC has not identified a specific type of leafy greens linked to the USA infections, and because of the short shelf life of leafy greens, CDC is not recommending that US residents avoid any particular food at this time. However, the CDC noted that people who got sick during this outbreak "were not more likely than healthy people to have eaten romaine lettuce".
He said the illness onsets "occurred in late Nov & early Dec, so the source of these cases likely is no longer on the market". The information about this outbreak has not been updated by government officials since December 28, 2017. However, in the United States, state and federal agencies stopped short of making that declaration, stating that the investigation is ongoing.
The CDC says the likely source of the outbreak in the US appears to be leafy greens, but officials have not specifically identified a type of greens eaten by people who became ill. "For instance, if the equipment at a processing plant is contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, new product could become a source of further infections". Finally, avoid preparing food when you are sick, particularly if you are sick with diarrhea. There has been one death in California, which was previously reported as connected to the outbreak. If you are concerned that you have an E. coli infection, talk to your healthcare provider. Those most at risk for E. coli illness include the very young, very old and individuals with compromised immune systems.
For the record, symptoms of E. coli begin two to eight days after consuming the bacteria, notes CNN.
