Twenty-two of those affected had to be hospitalized in the current outbreak, including three with kidney failure, CR reported. Ninety-three percent of the patients interviewed said they ate romaine lettuce the week before they got sick. Officials also warned about salads and salad mixes containing chopped romaine lettuce. The restaurants said they used bagged, chopped romaine lettuce to make the salads.
That's the update in which the CDC advised consumers to throw out store-bought chopped romaine lettuce, or lettuce they think might be romaine lettuce, and not to eat romaine in restaurants unless it can be verified that it doesn't come from the Yuma, Arizona, region.

The DNA fingerprint of the bacteria in that outbreak is different.
According to a spokesperson for Covelli Enterprises, which owns more than 300 Panera restaurants, the company has found a new supplier from outside the Yuma, Arizona region to provide romaine. Romaine grown elsewhere and other forms of romaine, such as whole heads or hearts, are not believed to have been contaminated, according to a joint statement from industry leaders. Those infected may suffer from bloody diarrhea, severe stomach cramps, and vomiting. If a fever is present, it is usually less than 101°F.
