The Multistate Outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7 Infections Linked to Leafy Greens is Over

The CDC announced that as of January 25, 2018, the infection due to leafy greens (CDC never attributed the outbreak to Romaine lettuce) is over. A total of 25 people were infected by STEC O157:H7 from 15 states. Nine ill people were hospitalized, including two people who developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure. One death was reported from California. The true source of the outbreak was never discovered and CDC believes that it is a leafy green. Since Leafy greens have a short shelf life, and since the last illness started a month ago, it is likely that contaminate leafs are no longer available. @ https://www.cdc.gov/ecoli/2017/o157h7-12-17/index.html" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.cdc.gov/ecoli/2017/o157h7-12-17/index.html
