Restaurants and grocery stores across Chicago pull romaine lettuce amid CDC alert

In the USA, the Centre for Disease Control used much stronger language, advising consumers to throw away all romaine lettuce. Some people may develop a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome. After 15 minutes, the pad displays one red line to show it worked properly - and a second if the sample contains E. coli O157.

Do not eat romaine lettuce, any of it, from anywhere or in anything.

Two cases were in Illinois, neither of which resulted in hospitalization, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health. Restaurants and retailers should not serve or sell any romaine lettuce, including salads and salad mixes containing romaine, CDC advised. Epidemiologic evidence in the United States and Canada indicates that romaine lettuce is a likely source of the outbreak.

Under the Consumer Protection Act, consumers are therefore to refrain from purchasing or consuming imported Romaine lettuce until further notice.

Walker’s 60 points not enough; 76ers top Hornets in OT
Asked how he has got so hot in the last couple of nights, Walker said in his on-court interview: "I'm just playing basketball". The Hornets' Kemba Walker scored a career-high 60 for the most points in a game since March 2017 when Devin Booker scored 70.

Warriner said he would like to see more focus put on decontamination processes at commercial food processing facilities and other efforts to stop E. coli contamination at its source rather than catch it after it has affected foods. No deaths have been reported.

No deaths have been reported so far but 32 cases of food poisoning were reported across 11 states in the USA, with 13 people hospitalised and one patient developing a form of kidney failure.

"I think that the issue isn't that there's more unsafe food", Gottlieb said. It is also suggested that areas where the lettuce was stored be washed and sanitized.

The voluntary recall was issued by Conagra Brands due to "a positive finding of Salmonella in a retail sample of Duncan Hines Classic White cake mix that may be linked to a Salmonella outbreak that is now being investigated by CDC (US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and FDA", Conagra said in a statement.
