E. Coli outbreak in several states possibly tied to Wendy’s


37 people have gotten sick in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Indiana, with 10 people hospitalized. Authorities are still searching for the outbreak’s cause, but the CDC says most reported eating at a Wendy’s restaurant before getting sick, many specifically having sandwiches with romaine lettuce. The CDC clarifies that it is okay to eat at Wendy’s and that romaine lettuce is broadly safe to eat. As a precaution, the fast food chain has pulled lettuce off its sandwiches in the region.
