Lettuce associated with an E. coli outbreak in Michigan may have been sent to Windsor Regional Hospital's Metropolitan campus, the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit said Wednesday.

Medical Officer of Health Dr. Allen Heimann was notified about the tainted lettuce by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. To date, there have been no related E.coli cases in Windsor-Essex, but the health unit is holding a news conference at 4 p.m. today to discuss the issue.

The Michigan Department of Community Health has said 26 cases of E.coli have been linked to bagged, industrial-sized packages of iceberg lettuce sold to wholesalers, restaurants and institutions. Ten people have been hospitalized in Michigan.
