Share post:

CHICAGO – A recent outbreak of E. Coli has been connected to a possible source: Wendy’s romaine lettuce.

No deaths have been reported in the outbreak that’s effected 37 across four states, including Indiana.  But the CDC has found through interviewing cases 22 of 26 people had recent eaten at a Wendy’s restaurant.

The CDC said Friday it’s not advising people avoid eating at Wendy’s or stop eating romaine lettuce, but take precautions by removing lettuce used on sandwiches in effected regions.

“At this time, there is no evidence to indicate that romaine lettuce sold in grocery stores, served in other restaurants, or in people’s homes is linked to this outbreak.” The CDC said Friday.  “Call your healthcare provider right away if you have any severe E. coli symptoms”

Wendy’s has been directed to remove romaine lettuce used on sandwiches in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
