But the culprit strain of E. coli has the same genetic fingerprint of the bacteria behind a rash of food-borne illnesses reported during fall 2017 in Canada and in January in 15 USA states, where it killed one person and sickened two dozen others, the CDC said.

Njoo says the most recent illness began November 1 but a delay in reporting means the agency didn't find out about it until this week. The agency said there is no evidence that other parts of Canada have been affected.

Romaine's increased susceptibility comes down to several factors, he said.

Eight patients were hospitalized, and one developed a type of kidney failure found mostly in patients with E. coli. Traceback Investigation As such, the FDA, in cooperation with other agencies, is conducting a traceback investigation to determine the source of the romaine lettuce consumed by those who fell ill. "These recent illnesses indicate that contaminated romaine lettuce may still be on the market, including in restaurants, grocery stores and any establishments that serve food".

Symptoms of E. coli contamination include severe stomach cramping, diarrhea, and vomiting.

Additionally, they oppose recommendations about washing lettuce before using it to make salads.

With a series of E. coli outbreaks and contaminated romaine lettuce sweeping across the United States, the South Korean government has attempted to assuage local concern by confirming that lettuce produced and distributed in South Korea is safe.

"New romaine from different growing regions, including Florida and Arizona, will soon be harvested", Gottlieb tweeted.

Remember the outbreak from earlier this year and how five people actually died because they had romaine lettuce?

Warriner conducted a study that showed romaine lettuce extracts prompted E. coli out of a dormant state, which it can remain in for about a year in soil, and allowed it to flourish. In the USA, 199 people were infected and three died, according to the CDC.

Marler Clark, The Food Safety Law Firm, is the nation's leading law firm representing victims of E. coli outbreaks and hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS).

People usually notice symptoms three to four days after they have been infected, but symptoms can start any time.
