The Centers for Disease Control said it was looking at 10 other cases probably linked to the outbreak.
Freshway Foods of Sidney, Ohio also markets the lettuce under the name,” Imperial Sysco brand.” The recall also affects "grab and go" salads sold at Kroger, Giant Eagle, Ingles Markets and Marsh grocery stores. The lettuce was sold in Alabama, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
So far, College students at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Ohio State in Columbus and Daemen College in Amherst, N.Y., are among those affected. The New York state Public Health Laboratory in Albany discovered the contamination in a bag of Freshway Foods shredded romaine lettuce on Wednesday. In Columbus Ohio, Seven people were hospitalized, including five students at Ohio State.
It’s interesting that when Chile defied the gobermnt, millions of grapes were destroyed because of an E. Coli find. Now we see Arizona defying the gobermnt, and what happens?

Thank you for the warning. Used to buy the bags of green like in the article but now get my food from a local ranch market. Not only is the food grown locally it is much more flaverful. It even comes with some dirt on it now and then to remind you to wash it.
