Tainted Romaine Lettuce Turns Deadly

The E. coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce is turning deadly. 

The Centers for Disease control confirmed the death reported in California. The CDC reports 121 people in 25 states, including New York, have become ill since the outbreak began in March from the lettuce grown in the Yuma, Arizona area.

Meanwhile, the FDA has confirmed that potentially contaminated oysters harvested in British Columbia are linked to a recent norovirus outbreak. The oysters were distributed in New York and several other states. An ongoing investigation is underway to make sure that all of the affected oysters are removed from the food supply.
