102 ill from Salinas, California romaine lettuce

Federal health officials are continuing to warn consumers to not eat romaine lettuce from Salinas, California.

More than 100 people in 23 states have been infected with a strain of E. coli linked to romaine lettuce harvested in the California growing region, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Wednesday.

The CDC said in an update that an additional 35 illnesses have been reported since Nov. 26 when there were 67 cases in 19 states.

The Food and Drug Administration and the CDC are investigating a multistate outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 infections linked to the lettuce “to determine the source of contamination and if additional products are linked to illness.”
