The romaine lettuce E. coli outbreak is spreading. Officials say it's a good idea to toss your romaine lettuce in the trash until they find the cause of the outbreak.
31 more people from ten states have been affected by the outbreak since last week, bringing the total to 84 according to an update from the CDC.
Forty-two people have been hospitalized, including one who developed kidney failure. A total of 19 states have reported cases of E. coli from romaine lettuce, with Colorado, Georgia and South Dakota being added to the list. Pennsylvania and California have been the hardest hit by the outbreak.
The CDC says the infected lettuce is probably coming from the Yuma, Arizona growing region, and warns consumers not to eat the lettuce if you don't know where it was grown. The exact source is under investigation.
