Romaine Lettuce Source Of E coli Outbreak In Washington State

Late night news developments seem to be getting common.  Here’s what’s just been filed on the Marler blog:

King 5 TV just reported that the Washington State Department of Health announced that nine confirmed cases of E. coli O157:H7 infection found in north Thurston and south Pierce counties (appears to be college students – food service) have been traced to bagged, commercial romaine lettuce.

Health officials say it’s not the same type of lettuce you would buy in a grocery store. The Health Department says four cases of E. coli O157:H7 infection were identified in Thurston County, and six in Pierce County. Some of the people infected were hospitalized. The people who got sick all had salad or lettuce at different places, which means all of those places probably got their lettuce from a single source.
