The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating whether romaine lettuce is the source of a deadly E. coli outbreak. This is the same type of E. coli that is responsible for the current outbreak in the United States and Canada.
"Because we have not identified a source of the infections, CDC is unable to recommend whether U.S. residents should avoid a particular food".
The consumer advocacy group believes USA health officials should be sending a stronger message to stay away from the popular salad green as they investigate the string of illnesses.
Contracting E. coli infection can lead to stroke, kidney failure, seizures and in rare instances, death. So far, it is believed that one person has died in the USA and another has died in Canada.
Even though the CDC hasn't confirmed a link with romaine lettuce, Consumer Reports is still recommending that people stop eating it until the cause of the outbreak is determined. "This investigation is ongoing, and more information will be released as it becomes available", the agency said in a statement.
