Romaine Lettuce Recall 2018: What Consumers Should Know

Don't eat romaine lettuce: Health Canada This Is a Record Year for Foodborne Illnesses

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) says that they are working with public health officials and the U.S. FDA to determine the source of the romaine lettuce that ill individuals were exposed to.

One local shopper says she doesn't expect to see romaine lettuce at any grocery stores in town.

But even as public health officials in Canada and the US warned against consuming romaine, the lettuce was still piled high and prominently displayed at several grocery stores visited by this newspaper Wednesday morning.

Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore told The New Paper that Singapore does import romaine lettuce from the US.

In Canada, as of November 20, there have been 18 confirmed cases of E. coli illness investigated, including three cases in Ontario and 15 cases in Quebec.

The most recent illness in the new Romaine E. coli O157:H7 outbreak occurred on October 31, 2018.

CDC advised consumers, restaurants, and retailers in the USA and Canada not to eat, serve, or sell any romaine lettuce as it investigates an outbreak of E. coli infections linked to romaine.


This is due to the risk of the antibiotics potentially increasing the chance of hemolytic uremic syndrome, which is a type of kidney failure. That means romaine heads, hearts of romaine, baby romaine, chopped romaine, and any salad blend or mix that may contain romaine.

In every case, proper infection control measures are key: Officials are advising people to wash any refrigerator that has stored romaine lettuce and to thoroughly wash hands with soap and water before and after handling any holiday meat.

There are no deaths reported in connection to this outbreak, but one person has developed hemolytic uremic syndrome.

The Ministry said it will continue to monitor this health concern and provide the public with further updates as and when necessary. Arguing that unlike field-raised crops, their romaine lettuce is never exposed to possible contamination sources from birds or animals.

Thirty-two illnesses in 11 states have been linked to romaine. They adhere to the highest mandatory food safety standards, testing and safeguards to ensure Florida produce is safe.
