CDC Investigates Multistate E coli O103 Outbreak

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and several other USA agencies are investigating an E.coli outbreak in five states, the CDC said here on Friday.

Analysis of the E. coli strain indicates that the ill people appear to share a common source of infection. The CDC has a collection of these fingerprints in a database that aides in identifying potential outbreaks.

They say 72 people of all ages have been infected - with eight of those infected winding up in hospitals.

Police did not offer further details about how the two were freed, and it's not clear if a ransom was paid. Queen Elizabeth National Park runs along part of the country's border with DR Congo.

States are said to be investigating additional illnesses that might be a part of this outbreak.

Most people with Shiga toxin-producing E. coli or STEC start feeling sick up to four days after eating or drinking something that contains the bacteria.

The cases have been recorded in five states - Georgia (8), Kentucky (36), OH (5), Tennessee (21), and Virginia (2). Illnesses began on Mar 2, with Mar 29 as the latest illness onset. They range in age from 1 to 74 years, with a median of 17 years, and 55% are female.

On April 5, 2019, the CDC reported that the source of the infections has not yet been linked to a specific food item, grocery store, or restaurant chain. No deaths were reported.

For now, the CDC is not recommending that consumers avoid any particular food or that restaurants or retailers avoid serving or selling any particular food. Our E. coli lawyers have litigated E. coli and HUS cases stemming from outbreaks traced to ground beef, raw milk, lettuce, spinach, sprouts, and other food products. Antibiotics are not recommended for patients with suspected E. coli infections until testing has been performed.

Escherichia coli are bacteria found in the environment, foods and intestines of people and animals.
