An E. Coli outbreak is affecting at least 13 states and has sickened at least 17 people, killing at least one, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The outbreak, which began in mid-November, is said to still be ongoing and health officials believe that romaine lettuce may be the cause, although an official determination has not been made.
According to CNN, the cases have been in “California (3), Connecticut (2), Illinois (1), Indiana (1), Michigan (1), Nebraska (1), New Hampshire (2), New York (1), Ohio (1), Pennsylvania (1), Virginia (1), Vermont (1) and Washington (1).”
Beyond the cases in the United States, an outbreak has been reported in Canada, and has been traced to the same strain of E. Coli. At least 41 people have been sickened in the Canada outbreak.
