"Fifty-two people out of 102 with available information (51 per cent) have been hospitalised, including 14 who developed a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome", said the CDC report. The strain linked to chopped romain lettuce is a Shinga toxin-producing E. coli, which can cause severe stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting, the CDC said.

Hemolytic uremic syndrome cause cause fatigue, fever, decreased urination, and unusual bruising or bleeding. Harrison was the source of the whole head romaine lettuce that sickened eight inmates at an Alaska prison. It's important to avoid romaine lettuce unless you are sure you know where it comes from.
