BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is urging Americans “not to eat” romaine lettuce amid links to an E Coli outbreak.

There have been 32 confirmed cases in 11 states, including one case here in Maryland.

The CDC says consumers who have any type of romaine lettuce in their home should not eat it and should throw it away, even if some of it was eaten and no one has gotten sick.

This includes all types or uses of romaine lettuce, such as whole heads of romaine, hearts of romaine, and bags and boxes of precut lettuce and salad mixes that contain romaine, including baby romaine, spring mix, and Caesar salad.
