The CDC is warning people not to eat all types of romaine lettuce unless you know where it came from.

Earlier this month, health officials issued the advisory because people were experiencing E. coli infections from lettuce.

A dietitian says that once you hear about an advisory, such as this one, you should immediately throw away the food.

In this case, if you eat lettuce and it’s from Yuma, Arizona where the infection broke you could start to see symptoms within 3-4 days.

Those symptoms include diarrhea that can be bloody, severe stomach cramps, and vomiting.

“We know that hand washing is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of any kind of E. coli or any other kind of food born illness,” said Sandra Horob, Trinity Health Director of Nutrition.

The CDC says that there is more than 53 cases in 16 states.

Currently, there are no cases reported in North Dakota.
