Just when you try to be healthy and life says nope!

I'm trying to eat more veggies but when you people keeling over from E.Coli, well it makes it a bit of a hassle. 

Since April 21, there have been 125 cases E.Coli linked to romaine lettuce. The lettuce has been sourced back to Yuma, Arizona. 

There has been one death in California since the outbreak, reported this past Wednesday by the CDC.

After three to four days, E.Coli symptoms begin which are normally stomach cramps, diarrhea, an vomiting. Recovery time is minimal, but in this case the CDC is stating that this strain of virus is highly virulent which is causing people to need more time to recover as well as hospitalization.

So far the most recent states to report illnesses has been Kentucky, Massachusetts, and Utah.  The CDC advises people to not consume any foods that uses Romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona region.
