YUMA, Ariz. – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expanding its romaine lettuce recall. It is now advising people throw away whole heads of romaine in addition to chopped romaine. Salad mixes with pieces of romaine should also be discarded.

The agency said 53 people in 16 states have become infected with E. coli from lettuce. No deaths have been reported.

The contaminated lettuce is from the Yuma, Arizona region. However, the CDC said unless you can confirm where the lettuce is from, it should be thrown away.
