Third Mahoning County woman linked to E. coli outbreak

Throw Out All Types of Romaine Lettuce, CDC Warns

Thus far, 53 people infected with the outbreak strain of E. coli O157:H7 have been reported from 16 states.

An additional 31 people have fallen ill from E. coli-contaminated romaine lettuce, bringing the tally to 84 cases across 19 states from an outbreak whose source is still under investigation.

The Ohio Department of Health tells 21 News that an 18-year-old woman from Mahoning reported symptoms in late March. "Health officials are working to determine why this strain is causing a higher percentage of hospitalizations", the agency said in a statement Wednesday.

He says E. coli symptoms will feel like the worst kind of sickness you've had, including severe stomach cramps, bloody stools and diarrhea. Getting plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration is the recommended treatment, Griffin said.

Of those hospitalized, nine have developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure associated with an E. coli illness that can be life-threatening. Most are gone within a week, but some can last longer and be more severe, the CDC said.

Health officials investigating the outbreak have obtained information on 78 of the sick patients and found that 42 of them have been hospitalized.

Do not serve or sell any romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona growing region. "Don't buy it; don't eat it", said Dr. Laura Gieraltowski, of CDC's Foodborne Outbreak Response Team.

"Do not buy or eat romaine lettuce at a grocery store or restaurant unless you can confirm it is not from the Yuma, Arizona, growing region", the federal health officials said.

Franchise owner, Sherrie Gentzlar says as soon as they heard about the outbreak, corporate had them jump right into action.

This warning now includes whole heads and hearts of romaine lettuce, in addition to chopped romaine and salads and salad mixes containing romaine. They begin, on average, three to four days after ingesting the bacteria.

To be on the safe side, Clark says, avoid eating salads or anything that contain romaine lettuce.

No warnings or advisories have been issued about romaine lettuce grown elsewhere - a Chipotle in Doral had no lettuce Tuesday while it awaited a shipment from California - although the CDC advises if you're not sure about your lettuce, toss it.
