Deaths have been confirmed in Arkansas, California, Minnesota and NY with two of those deaths happening in Minnesota.

"Promptly after the advisory was issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on April 13, 2018, we removed all romaine originating from the Yuma growing region from our cafes, and began looking for a new source", Panera said on its website, noting that it now sources its romaine lettuce from California.

Casting them as a peace gesture, the government said 40 activists were being released on Saturday, after 39 were freed on Friday. Human rights groups say Venezuela illegally jails hundreds of people.

Officials urged people to throw away all romaine lettuce after the first outbreak was reported in March and now officials say the growing season in Arizona has ended. "That's really the concern at this point". The total number of deaths from the outbreak has reached five. Eighty-nine people have been hospitalized.

Although this particular lettuce shouldn't be a risk anymore, E. coli is nearly always a danger, and steps can be taken to avoid getting ill. The most recent case started on May 6, 2018.

The FDA said it may take a while to find out how the bacteria got into so much of the romaine lettuce supply. That is much higher than the results of a survey of healthy people in which 46% said they ate romaine lettuce the week before. "Trucks all across the country were dumping romaine", Drew McDonald, vice president of quality and food safety at Taylor Farms, told the WSJ. While almost 90 percent of those who fell ill reported eating romaine lettuce in the week before they were sickened, some told the CDC that they did not personally eat the lettuce but were in close contact with somebody who did.

For romaine lettuce growers it meant abandoning the popular green, or shifting production out of Arizona and into other areas like California. This includes washing hands after using the bathroom or after changing a baby's diaper; washing your hands after contact with an animal; and washing your hands before preparing food.
