Chopped romaine from Yuma, Arizona, has caused a large multistate breakout of E.coli, according to the CDC.

As of April 20th, there have been at least 60 confirmed cases of the illness across 16 different states. 31 of the cases resulted in the patients being hospitalized, per The Washington Post.

Symptoms of E. coli typically begin two to eight days after consuming the bacteria, although most patients become ill three or four days after consumption. Symptoms include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting.

Most people recover in five to seven days. The people most at risk for E. coli illness include the very young, the very old and individuals with compromised immune systems.
