At least 63% are female. They are the first cases reported in Minnesota, in a national outbreak of E. coli that has sickened more than 120 people and caused one death. As of May 8, 2018, 149 people living in 29 states are sick. A second case in ND possibly associated with the outbreak is still under investigation.

Since issuing its initial warning back in April, the CDC has been battling an E. coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce. They live in both metro and greater Minnesota counties.

The CDC said the current outbreak is unrelated to the multi-state outbreak of E. coli in leafy greens in November and December, because the two strains of E. coli O157:H7 bacteria have different DNA fingerprints. They said they ate romain from grocery stores, at restaurants and residential facilities.

Mandatory solar panels possible for new Californian homes?
Buildings with roofs that are too undersized for standard solar systems are debarred from the projected standards. The new plan will save homeowners $50,000 to $60,000 in operating cost over a 25-year period.

The US Food and Drug Administration said it received confirmation from the Arizona Department of Agriculture that romaine lettuce is no longer being grown or shipped from the Yuma area.

In the meantime, the Yuma growing season has ended, and California is the growing region throughout summer.

Though the contaminated lettuce is thought to come exclusively from the Yuma area, another two dozen farms are under investigation, and the FDA now believes that only the Alaska illnesses were related to Harrison's romaine.

Symptoms of E. coli infection typically include stomach cramps, diarrhea and a low-grade fever, the MDH said.

The condition can be life-threatening in between 5 percent to 10 percent of people infected. Those most at risk of developing complications from E. coli O157 include children younger than 10, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems. Anyone who believes they may have developed the infection should contact their health provider.

Shiga-toxin-producing E. coli - the kind involved in this outbreak - is so potent that the Department of Homeland Security even lists it as a potential agent of biological warfare. The E. coli lawyers of Marler Clarkhave represented thousands of victims of E. coli and other foodborne illness infections and have recovered over $650 million for clients.

So far there have been ten cases in Minnesota which have been linked to eating romaine lettuce.
