Coli outbreak is over as new evidence points to tainted water

Source of E. coli in Deadly Romaine Lettuce Outbreak Finally Found

And worse, 27 people developed hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a type of kidney failure. The agency received confirmation of the final harvest of romaine from the Yuma region on May 2, and the vegetable has a 21-day shelf life.

This E. coli outbreak was the largest in the U.S.in more than a decade, according to Time.

In 2006, almost 200 people were sickened by tainted spinach in 26 states; a single California produce company was at the center of that outbreak.

Hamilton's retirement with eight laps to go, and while in fourth place, ended a record run of 33 successive scoring finishes. By Lap 59 a total of four drivers had retired from the race. "My gearbox is gone", he told the team.


Public health officials did link whole romaine lettuce heads grown at Harrison Farms in Yuma to eight E. coli illnesses in the Anvil Mountain Correctional Center. Five people from four states died.

Officials tied that 2006 outbreak to a contaminated stream. But they were unable to find a single farm or packaging or distribution site that could clearly be fingered as the source of contamination for the other cases. It was across multiple supply chains. Fox 8 reports that they also said they won't reveal the location of the canal that has been identified until they have finished composing a report on the matter. That led to suspicions that the outbreak might be from a common water source.

How the E.coli came to be in the canal water is still under investigation by the FDA."Samples have been collected from environmental sources in the region, including water, soil, and cow manure".

Now, Warner Bros . has responded to Bethesda's lawsuit and said that Bethesda's claims are completely "unsubstantiated". Adding that the Westworld game does not share part of the source code with Bethesda's Fallout Shelter .


Samples of canal water in the Yuma area of Arizona were found to contain the same genetic strain of E. coli that caused the outbreak, Dr. Scott Gottlieb, commissioner of the federal Food and Drug Administration, said in a statement.

FDA's latest update can be found here. The Yuma region - which includes farms across the Colorado River in southeastern California - grows the overwhelming majority of the lettuce and other leafy greens consumed in the United States in the winter months.

"Important steps to take are to cook meat thoroughly, and wash hands after using the restroom or changing diapers, before and after preparing or eating food, and after contact with animals", advises the CDC.
