CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Health officials say two people in New Hampshire have been affected by a new E. coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce.

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services announced the two cases Wednesday.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning people to avoid eating the lettuce. They say the strain has sickened 32 people in 11 states and 18 people in Canada.

A specific source of the romaine lettuce has yet to be identified. The CDC is recommending that consumers throw out any romaine lettuce in their homes, and avoid eating romaine at restaurants.
