(WILX) -- More people are getting sick from their salads.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says at least 53 people in 16 states, including Michigan, have become ill after eating chopped romaine lettuce believed to be contaminated with E. Coli.

Symptoms include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea, and vomiting.

The CDC says if you have any chopped bagged romaine lettuce at home to throw it away.

The CDC is saying that chopped romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona region could be contaminated with E. coli and could be behind what's making people sick.

Before you buy lettuce at the store or eat it at a restaurant, the CDC says you should confirm with the store that it's not chopped romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona area.
