Our Michigan food poisoning laywersare reporting that pre-cut lettuce is suspected cause of food poisoning outbreak in the U.S. including the State of Michigan. The pre-cut lettuce that is in suspicion is the bagged romaine lettuce that was not sold directly to consumers in the produce section but used by food service companies and supermarkets in salad bars and “grab and go” meals. The food poisoning outbreak is due to the contamination of E. coli, or Escherichia coli O145, bacteria.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention twenty-three people in four states have been sickened since March 1, with seven other probable cases. College students in Michigan, Ohio, and New York are at risk since they ate the infected lettuce in dining halls. Due to these and previous outbreaks, the Food and Drug Administration is working towards federal regulations for growing, harvesting, and processing fresh produce. This will be the first federal regulation on fresh produce if published.
To ensure that you do not get contaminated with E. coli, always take proper safety precautions such as washing bagged lettuce before eating or staying away from such purchases due to the recent outbreaks that are taking place throughout the U.S.
If someone were to contaminated with E. coli, serious injuries can result. The most common effect is a diarrhea illness often with bloody stools. However, a contaminated individual could develop Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome, which could lead to serious kidney damageor even death. Young children and elders are more probable to the syndrome.
