This sounds like an extensive outbreak with cases in California, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Vermont, and Washington state to date.  Canada's Eastern Provinces are advised to avoid Romaine currently also. 

http://www.consumerreports.org/food...e-for-now/


Edit to add:  I saw this on Rabbit Advocates FB page. If anyone has additional information, please share it here. It may come to light there are particular brands to avoid for now. Or lettuce packed in a specific time frame.

Wick's vet made a point to mention staying away from purchasing romaine for a while, so I can advocate that this is information some professionals are taking very seriously. There are some deaths reported (humans), and while unsure about impact to pets, better safe than sorry.

I didn't realise there was an earlier thread about this. Rookie brought up the issue here: http://www.binkybunny.com/FORUM/tab...fault.aspx

Really hating this. Romaine is the veg I feed the most. Luckily, they seem happy with the green leaf but I miss my Ceasar Salads. I'm gonna forever be paranoid about Romaine. I was with cilantro for a while a few years back as I had seen a lot of recalls online.

Phew, finally found the thread

There's been an update from the CDC declaring that the outbreak is over: https://www.cdc.gov/ecoli/2017/o157h7-12-17/index.html

That outbreak has been over with for a month or more.  You can continue to give Romaine to your rabbit.  The outbreak was only found in a few states and happened mainly in November and December.

I'm still too paranoid to buy Romaine.......funny, though. I will eat it in the Spring Mix packages but won't feed any to Bindi. He's too precious.

I actually bought a large package of romaine leaf this past weekend as part of the weekly batch of greens. I noticed the other evening that Fernando appears to really enjoy lettuce hearts - he took one out of the salad bowl and spent fifteen minutes happily chewing it down - so I think I shall look for some next weekend.

How tiresome! We've had spring for 3 weeks now, so Bam's romaine has been replaced by freshly picked dandelion greens and a litttle bit of yarrow. Soon there will be apple leaves as well

Bumping the thread because it's the first one when you search about "Romaine lettuce Bunny E. Coli" on google.

It's back.

Thanks for that, I had a quick look for this thread earlier but didn't find it. I have updated the thread title to reflect the current situation. Romaine lettuce in USA and Canada should not be eaten or fed to bunnies.

Are rabbits affected the same way humans are? I know it's a good precaution to throw this stuff out, but a lot of diseases only tend to affect humans. Has there been any confirmation that rabbits or other animals may be affected by ecoli the same way humans are?
