Consumer Reports warns against eating any romaine lettuce

Food safety experts at Consumer Reports are advising people in the U.S. and Canada to stop eating romaine lettuce.

In the U.S., the infections have been confirmed in 13 states — California, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Vermont and Washington.
