Metro health officials confirm E. coli case linked to lettuce

In good news for salad lovers everywhere, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is now advising that it is safe to crunch into romaine lettuce once again.

On Wednesday, May 15, 2018, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it's unlikely that anyone now has edible romaine lettuce that's contaminated with the toxic strain of E. coli bacteria sickening people nationwide since March. More cases may get reported, but the shelf-life of romaine lettuce is not long and no more is being harvested from the affected area.

Romaine lettuce of all varieties from the Yuma, Arizona, region has been blamed as the source of this outbreak.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday that the total number of people sickened by a strain of E. coli is now 172 across 32 states.

Apple wants $1B from Samsung at smartphone retrial
A $1.05 billion jury verdict from 2012 has been whittled down by a previous retrial in 2013, along with appeals and adjustments. The court ordered Apple and Samsung to negotiate a date for a retrial to settle the award money for Apple .

Avoid buying romaine lettuce unless you can confirm the source is other than the Yuma growing region.

"It takes two to three weeks between when a person becomes ill with E. coli and when the illness is reported to CDC", the agency said. So, if you were exposed to the contaminated lettuce, you likely would have gotten sick by now. Last week, the outbreak was reported in just 29 states.

"CDC is updating its advice to consumers". The outbreak has killed one person and sickened almost 150 others. Of the 157 people who were ill that the CDC has information on, 75 have been hospitalized and 20 have developed hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), the form of kidney failure that can be fatal.
