And if romaine was anywhere on your Thanksgiving menu, make an emergency switch to spinach.
In a news release posted on its website, Loblaw also said its stores would provide "a full refund" if customers returned the products.
The Public Health Agency of Canada says a possible outbreak has sickened 18 people in Ontario and Quebec, while 32 people across 11 states have reportedly fallen ill. Of 26 people with information available, 13 (50%) were hospitalized, including one person who developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure.
However, laboratory analysis indicates that the illnesses reported in this outbreak are genetically related to illnesses reported in a previous E. coli outbreak from December 2017. That outbreak, which was declared over in June, was traced to contamination in the Yuma, Ariz., growing region.
Antibiotics should not be used in treating E. coli O157 bacterial infections, said Dr. Isaac Bogoch, an infectious disease specialist at Toronto General Hospital. Some shops said that romaine was still being sold because officials had not specified the source of potentially contaminated romaine, such as a farm or company.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency did not immediately respond to a request for comment about why it had stopped short of instructing grocery stores to stop selling romaine lettuce and restaurants to cease serving it.
Romaine lettuce has been taken off the shelf for fear of an E. coli outbreak at this grocery store in Toronto, Ontario, Canada November 21, 2018. "We need to have retailers require this in their supply chains". Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. The association also called on handlers to clean and sanitize any equipment that may have been used in recent weeks to prevent cross-contamination. Now there are no food recalls associated with this outbreak.
Unlike field-grown lettuce, which can be contaminated by groundwater, hydroponic greens use local water sources that are monitored to ensure they are free of harmful pathogens, CEO Viraj Puri said.
But unfortunately, that's not the case with the tainted romaine now wreaking havoc in the U.S. The CDC still has no idea where it came from or how long it will be before romaine is safe to eat again. People usually get better within five to 10 days and there is no "real treatment" apart from staying hydrated. "I think food safety should take priority".
