Officials struggle to pinpoint source of E. coli outbreak
Health officials say they still haven't been able to nail down a specific source of a sweeping E. coli outbreak likely linked to romaine lettuce grown in California. The FDA has been reviewing shipping records to trace the romaine that sick people ate back to the places where it was grown and processed. The early findings from that investigation suggest sick people in several parts of the country ate romaine that was harvested in parts of Northern and central California. Health officials say that for now, people shouldn't eat romaine grown in these six California counties.
