Health officials in the Halton and Niagara regions said yesterday the most likely source of an E. coli outbreak that has made more than 130 people sick throughout the province was lettuce. Dr. Monir Taha, associate medical officer for the Halton public health department, said he couldn't confirm a single product as a source, but lettuce was the most common food named in interviews with those reporting symptoms of the food-borne illness.
