Five dead as E coli outbreak spreads across the US in contaminated lettuce

Five dead as E coli outbreak spreads across the US in contaminated lettuceFive people have died due to an E coli outbreak across the United States, thought to be spread by romaine lettuce. The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has confirmed 197 cases of the deadly disease across 35 states, making it the largest E coli outbreak since 2006, when 200 people were affected. Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says there is no single grower or distributor to be blamed for the outbreak, and is still investigating, Arizona’s Yuma growing region is thought to be the source of the contaminated lettuce.
