That brings the total death count from the recent E. coli outbreak to five.
As of May 30 the investigation figures show 197 people infected with the outbreak strain of E. coli O157:H7 have been reported from 35 states. In the spring, the CDC linked the outbreak to romaine lettuce grown in and around Yuma, Arizona.
However, the lettuce from that region is past its shelf life and is likely no longer being sold in stores or served in restaurants, the FDA said. On Friday, health officials said they have learned of four more - two in Minnesota and one each in Arkansas and NY.

It takes two to three weeks between when a person becomes ill with E. coli and when the illness is reported to CDC.
Officials from the CDC and the FDA emphasized that nearly all these illnesses were contracted during the window when the lettuce was still for sale. Of 187 people with information available, 89 (48 percent) have been hospitalized, including 26 people who developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure.
It is the largest United States outbreak of E. coli since 200 people fell ill in 2006.
Officials also noted that some of the individuals who became ill never actually consumed the contaminated lettuce but were in close contact with someone else who had done so.
Symptoms include diarrhea, which can be bloody, severe stomach cramps and vomiting.
