Two people also received hemolytic uremic syndrome, which is a disease caused by abnormal destruction of blood cells that could lead to kidney failure.

"Just Salad suppliers are NOT affected by the possible E.coli outbreak", the statement read, before informing customers of where their lettuce in all markets originates.

Restaurants and retailers should ask their suppliers about the source of their romaine lettuce. Federal officials said not to buy or eat such lettuce unless you are able to confirm it is not from the Yuma region. The Yuma growing region includes part of western Arizona and extends into the Imperial Valley of southeastern California.

The infections have been largely traced to lettuce grown in the Yuma region of the southwestern United States. People typically become ill two to five days after exposure, but this period can range from one to eight days.

For those who are generally healthy, the effects of E. coli may resolve in just a few days, and some of the symptoms may not feel as severe as someone with a weakened immune system, like children or the elderly. Anyone who believes they may have developed the infection should contact their health provider.

How Bad Has The E. Coli Outbreak Been?

"If you do not know whether lettuce is romaine, do not eat it", the statement said. We have proudly represented such victims as Brianne Kiner, Stephanie Smithand Linda Rivera.
