According to the CDC, it takes an average of three to four days to get sick after eating food infected with E. coli, but it can take up to eight days. Consumers should check that the lettuce they buy does not come from Yuma, Arizona.

"We are cooperating fully with government and working closely to further identify the specific source of this outbreak", it said, noting that the advisory affects only chopped, bagged lettuce and not whole heads or hearts of romaine. It's with anything else like with meat, you don't want to contaminate it'.

DPH said while no one has fallen ill from tainted lettuce in DE yet, dozens have been sickened in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Virginia. Medical providers should report suspected cases of E. coli O157:H7 to the DPH Office of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at 302-744-4990 or 24/7 at 888-295-5156. A majority of the cases resulted in hospitalization. The FDA, along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, recommend that consumers not eat romaine lettuce from that area. The supplier may have some type of product recall, withdrawal, and/or contamination coverage, coverage which typically applies to accidental contamination situations and affords some coverage for the insured's costs incurred regarding the recall, income replacement, product testing and destruction, and brand rehabilitation and public relations.
