No deaths have so far been reported. This investigation is ongoing and the advice will be updated as more information is available.

So far 32 illnesses from E. coli poisoning have been reported in the U.S., with 13 people being hospitalised, but nobody is thought to have died.

In the same story, FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb insists that it's not that there's more unsafe food, but that the CDC has "better technology than ever before to link outbreaks of human illness to a common pathogen".

"Consumers who have any type of romaine lettuce in their home should not eat it and should throw it away, even if some of it was eaten and no one has gotten sick", the CDC said. People in the spring outbreak were infected with E. coli O157:H7 bacteria with a different DNA fingerprint.
