Coli cases around state linked to romaine lettuce

Do not eat or buy romaine lettuce unless you can confirm it is not from the Yuma growing region. They live in both metro and greater Minnesota counties. The ill people range in age from 1 to 88 years old. Numerous people sickened across the country ate chopped lettuce that had been sold in bagged form to restaurants.

Those most at risk of developing complications from E. coli O157 include children younger than 10, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems.
