The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning of a new E. coli outbreak linked to Salinas, California, where the U.S. gets most of its lettuce. At least eight cases of E. coli in three states have been linked to Fresh Express Sunflower Crisp Chopped Salad Kits.

But it's unclear if these new cases are connected to a more widespread outbreak from romaine that has sickened 102 people in 23 states.

According to the CDC, people started getting sick between November 5-15 in Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin after eating the salad mix. One of those patients developed kidney failure.
