INDIANA (WLFI) — Indiana is part of an E. coli outbreak now being linked to leafy greens and romaine lettuce.

The CDC says E. coli made 17 people across 13 states, including Indiana, sick within the past few months.

One person died.

The source of the infections is still unknown but signs are pointing to romaine lettuce and leafy greens.

A similar strain caused an outbreak in Canada in early November through early December with 41 people getting sick.
