Columbus, Ohio — Fast food chain Wendy’s says it is pulling lettuce from sandwiches at its restaurants in Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania after people there reported eating it sick.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday it is trying to determine whether romaine lettuce was the source of the E. coli outbreak that has infected at least 37 people and whether the romaine used at Wendy’s was also served or sold at other businesses.

The CDC said one person has also been infected in Indiana. I left a message with Wendy about lettuce on sandwiches in that case.

The CDC said there is no evidence that booze sold in grocery stores is linked to E. coli outbreaks. The agency also said it was not advising people to stop eating at Wendy’s or not eat romaine lettuce.

Wendy’s says the lettuce used in her salads is different and unaffected by her decision to pull the lettuce from the sandwiches. The company said it is cooperating with the CDC.

“As a company, we are committed to upholding our high standards of food safety and quality,” Wendy’s said in a statement.
