Almost a third of the cases are in Los Angeles County.

Meanwhile, romaine lettuce poses even more danger.

"Given the harvest cycle at that time, I think there's a good possibility that it came from California, yes", Horsfall said.

The import suspension comes in the wake of the outbreak of E. coli in lettuce in 11 states in the US.

Produce industry associations A group of open field produce industry associations made a statement regarding the E. coli outbreak as well.

As CDC officials warn of a particularly risky strain of the bacteria, one business in St. Pete says they are profiting from the government's warning - saying their lettuce is totally safe. On Tuesday, we learned of this new outbreak that has infected 32 people in the United States and another 18 in Canada.

It is not the same strain as the one from Yuma, Arizona, which sickened dozens and killed five earlier this year.

The AVA said on Wednesday that no specific brand of lettuce or farm have been identified by U.S. authorities in relation to the outbreak.


Laura Gieraltowski from the CDC Foodborne Outbreak Response Team told News 10, "If you have it in your home, go ahead and throw it away".

This advice includes all types or uses of romaine lettuce, such as whole heads of romaine, hearts of romaine, and bags and boxes of pre-cut lettuce and salad mixes that contain romaine, including baby romaine, spring mix, and Caesar salad.

"Our problem with romaine lettuce is that when you have these scares, people just don't want to eat any romaine", Karwacki said. It has resulted in one death and 164 reported illnesses in 35 states. "The Government of Canada has started more and more, issuing consumer advisories rather than issuing recalls", said McLinton.

All are likely linked to eating romaine lettuce contaminated by E. coli.

Members of the Retail Council of Canada represent 97 per cent of the retail trade in the country.

'This investigation is ongoing and the advice will be updated as more information is available'.

In the midst of a massive outbreak of e.coli in romaine lettuce, a farmer in Essex County is telling clients his lettuce is safe to eat.
