E. coli outbreak extends to New York and Kentucky, chain still refuses to ban lettuce
NBC NEWS – An E. coli outbreak centered in the Midwest has expanded to New York state, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The outbreak was previously reported in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. New York and Kentucky joined the list Friday with one case in each state.
The CDC has noted that the number of people sickened is likely higher than the 97 total reported in the six states, and the true number could include other states. Michigan is home to most of the affected — 58, the CDC said.
In a statement in August, Wendy’s said it was fully cooperating with public health authorities in the investigation and that it would be removing the sandwich lettuce from some restaurants in the region.
It’s not clear if it will do so for restaurants in the additional states.
The fast food chain not immediately respond to a request for comment …
