7 new E. coli cases; continue avoiding romaine lettuce

7 more cases reported in deadly E. coli outbreak

Photo Canadian health officials linked an E. coli outbreak there to romaine lettuce, while American officials said "leafy greens" were likely to blame for illnesses in the United States.

"The likely source of the outbreak in the United States appears to be leafy greens, but officials have not specifically identified a type of leafy greens eaten by people who became ill", the CDC reported today.

Of 13 sick people interviewed, all reported eating a type of vegetable with leafy leaves, some ate romaine lettuce, but health officials said that "no common supplier, distributor or retailer of green leafy vegetables has been identified".

It says there have been no reports on the onset of illness since December 12. Officials say that since the last illness started nearly a month ago, it's likely that any contaminated leafy greens that are linked to this outbreak are no longer on the market.

The cases in the United States are the same strain as the cases in Canada and some of them have the same genetic fingerprint. Of 13 interviewed, all 13 said they ate leafy greens. In some cases, people can become seriously ill and must be hospitalized.
