The Delaware Division of Public Health has issued a warning about a multistate outbreak of E. coli infections linked to chopped romaine lettuce from Yuma, Arizona.

There have been no confirmed cases yet, but the potentially contaminated lettuce could make people sick.

The Division advises customers who have purchased store-bought chopped romaine lettuce to throw it away and to check with suppliers before purchasing more romaine lettuce.

The Center for Disease Control has not identified a common grower, supplier, distributor or brand. The agency reports that 11 states have reported a total of 35 infections, including nine in Pennsylvania and seven in New Jersey.
