The Centers for Disease Control says an E.coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce has sickened 43 people in 12 states in the U.S. and 22 people in the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec.

Dillons stores said late Tuesday it will fully refund shoppers who have bought romaine lettuce from one of its stores following an E. coli outbreak in 11 states tied to the leafy green.

The refund extends to not just whole heads of romaine and hearts of romaine, but also bags and boxes of recut lettuce and salad mixes that have romaine, including baby romaine, spring mix and Caesar salad.

Dillons spokeswoman Sheila Lowrie said Wednesday morning all romaine and products containing it were pulled from the grocer’s shelves overnight.

Customers don’t have to have a receipt for the refund but Lowrie said it would be helpful of they could return the romaine in its original packaging.

“Absolutely bring it back,” Lowrie said. “We want to make sure we take care of our customers with this issue.”
