E. coli case linked to Wendy’s romaine expands to Indiana

As the number of infections has grown, the E. coli outbreak linked to Wendy’s sandwich romaine has expanded to another state: Indiana. The Atlanta-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said 84 illnesses and 38 hospitalizations had been linked to the suspected E. coli outbreak in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.

The Dublin, Ohio-based Wendy’s Co. was cooperating fully with the investigation, the CDC said in its update on the outbreak. The company had removed sandwich romaine from menu offerings in the region. The infections appeared to be limited to the suspected sandwich romaine. “Wendy’s uses a different type of romaine lettuce for salads,” the agency said.
