A map from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showing the number of persons who were infected with the strain of E. coli in the recent outbreak of illness in Missouri and nine other states.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has announced that romaine lettuce was the source of the E. coli outbreak that sickened a total of 60 people in ten states earlier this fall.
Thirty-seven of those infected were in Missouri.
On its website, the CDC says the lettuce came from salad bars from a single grocery store chain but did not report the name of the chain. Schnucks management has confirmed that it is the chain in question.
A new audit of the St. Louis city Board of Elections Commissioners finds the agency has made progress in reducing the number of duplicate voters on its rolls, but the report released today found other issues at the board.
