(Undated) — Ten people in California are dealing with E. coli after eating romaine lettuce. Another 22 illnesses have been reported in the eastern U.S. Health experts are warning consumers not to eat romaine lettuce in any form. The CDC issued the broad alert in response to a new outbreak of illnesses caused by a particularly dangerous strain of E. coli contamination. Consumers should toss out any romaine lettuce they may have already purchased, and it should not be served in restaurants or sold in stores. Heath authorities say the origin isn’t yet known, but it’s not related to an earlier outbreak in the spring.
