leafy green involved and that it's investigation is continuing. This means it's likely that there's a source of the outbreak that both countries shared, according to a press release issued by the agency when the outbreak was first announced in December.

But U.S. health authorities have said it's too early to blame leafy greens as the probe continues.

Last week, the CDC said it was eyeing leafy greens as the possible culprit and, this week, seem to be still looking for the source as the outbreak investigation continues.

In a January 8 letter to CDC Director Brenda Fitzgerald, DeLauro didn't mince words: "CDC's stunning lack of guidance to consumers regarding this outbreak is unconscionable".

"The FDA's outbreak investigation team is working with CDC and state and local officials to determine what ill people ate, where they bought it, and the distribution chain - all with the goal of reaching where these foods were produced, to see if there's any common food or point where the food might have become contaminated". Ill people also reported eating different types and brands of romaine lettuce.

Jean Halloran, director of Food Policy Initiatives at Consumers Union, said it's unclear what steps FDA and CDC are taking in the wake of one of the most serious outbreaks that has occurred in the Trump administration.

You can protect yourself by washing your hands thoroughly before and after preparing or eating food.

The symptoms of an E. coli O157:H7 infection include diarrhea that is bloody or watery, and severe stomach and abdominal cramps. You can also wash counters, cutting boards, and utensils after they touch raw meat to avoid contaminating other foods.
