Grocery stores and restaurants across Minnesota were scrambling to pull romaine lettuce from their shelves and menus Tuesday after federal health officials warned that the popular greens have been linked to a new national food illness outbreak.

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said 32 people in 11 states have been sickened by a dangerous type of E. coli linked to romaine. The outbreak has hospitalized 13 people, including one who developed kidney failure. No cases have been reported in Minnesota.
