Dr. John McKillip, microbiology professor with a background in food safety and food microbiology, said most E. coli is beneficial or neutral and usually lives within the intestines.

Consumers, for the time being, have been advised to throw away any store-bought romaine lettuce and to avoid buying more, or ordering it in a restaurant, unless they can confirm it was not sourced from the Yuma area.

After an E. coli outbreak affecting 19 states as of Wednesday, 18 of those have been reported in Pennsylvania.

According to Katherine Hoyer, public information officer at Panhandle Health District, the only reported case in North Idaho was in Boundary County.
