The CDC is expanding its warning about  an E. coli outbreak in romaine lettuce.  The previous E. coli warning  was for chopped forms of romaine, including salads and salad mixes.  The  new warning covers all forms of romaine lettuce, including whole heads  and hearts grown in the Yuma, Arizona region. The CDC says 31 people  have been hospitalized because of the E. coli outbreak, and five people  have developed kidney failure.  Officials say this strain of E. coli can  cause severe stomach cramps, vomiting and diarrhea, which is often  bloody.
