The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced the tally Friday, more than two months after the first illnesses occurred in mid-March. Although investigators have determined that the E. Coli came from contaminated romaine lettuce grown in Arizona"s Yuma region near the border with Southern California, the Food & Drug Administration has not been able to link the outbreak khổng lồ one farm, processor or distributor, according lớn Scott Gottlieb, the agency"s commissioner, và Stephen Ostroff, the deputy commissioner for foods và veterinary medicine, in an update Thursday.

With the tainted vegetables now off the shelves và the growing season over, the FDA may never crack the case, frustrating consumer advocates who have called on the agency khổng lồ issue rules that would speed up future investigations of food-borne illnesses, The Washington Post"s Caitlin Dewey reported.

The CDC said 197 people have been sickened, nearly half of whom were hospitalized. Some told officials that they did not eat romaine lettuce but became ill after close contact with people who had eaten contaminated vegetables, the CDC said. Twenty-six developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure that can be life-threatening to people with weak immune systems, such as young children & the elderly.

A majority of those who have been affected come from California, where one death was reported, and Pennsylvania. The four other deaths were reported in Arkansas, Minnesota và New York, according lớn the CDC.

Last month, the Canadian government announced six cases of illness caused by Escherichia coli with a “similar genetic fingerprint” lớn those reported in the United States. Two of the six told officials that they had traveled across the border before they became ill. Three were infected in Canada. Canadian officials, though, said the risk to lớn Canadians is low.

The FDA initially said that only bagged và pre-chopped romaine lettuce that had been distributed to retailers across the country was contaminated with E. Coli, but a number of inmates at a prison in Alaska also became ill after eating whole-head lettuce.

Because a majority of the illnesses were linked to packaged vegetables that had been passed from suppliers to lớn distributors to lớn processing facilities where they were chopped & bagged, finding out where they were grown is far more cumbersome.

“It"s a labor-intensive task. It requires collecting and evaluating thousands of records; and trying lớn accurately reproduce how the contaminated lettuce moved through the food supply chain khổng lồ grocery stores, restaurants & other locations where it was sold or served to lớn the consumers who became ill,” Gottlieb and Ostroff said in their joint statement.

This is the worst outbreak since 2006, when 205 people became ill and five died after contracting E. Coli from baby spinach.

E. Coli is a type of bacteria found in undercooked beef, raw milk, soft cheeses made from raw milk, raw fruits và vegetables, và contaminated water. Most E. Coli bacteria is not harmful, but one type known as E. Coli O157: H7 produces a toxin called Shiga, which destroys red blood cells, và causes kidney failure & bloody diarrhea. Other kinds of E. Coli cause urinary tract infections, respiratory illness và pneumonia.

Health officials said children under the age of 5, seniors older than 65 và those with weak immune systems are most vulnerable. So far, the outbreak has sickened people ages 12 lớn 84.
