Coli outbreak in 7 states

13 April 2018

CT is one of seven states where cases of E. coli poisoning have been reported.

States affected are New Jersey (6 cases), Idaho (4 cases), CT (2 cases), Pennsylvania (2 cases), Missouri (1 case), Washington (1 case) and OH (1 case). New Jersey has been hit the hardest, with six cases of the infection. "State and local public health officials are interviewing ill people to determine what they ate and other exposures in the week before their illness started". More severe cases can result in hemolytic uremic syndrome, a type of kidney failure.

New Jersey has the largest share of people infected, with six cases reported in the state.

C'Games organisers anxious as more Cameroon athletes disappear
Cameroon's remaining two weightlifters, along with the country's basketball team, were already heading home, the team added. Although the Australian Border Force has been informed, the athletes are not yet in breach of their visa conditions.

According to the CDC website, the current investigation includes the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service and is ongoing as a specific food item, grocery store, or restaurant chain has not been identified as the source of infections.

The particular strain of E. coli involved in this outbreak can cause bad stomach cramps, vomiting and bloody diarrhea. It is marked by easy bruising, pallor, and decreased urine output.

Anyone experiencing these symptoms should seek medical care immediately. They should also track the foods they've eaten and restaurants they've eaten in the week prior to becoming ill. Steaks and roasts should be cooked to at least 145˚F and let rest for 3 minutes after you remove meat from the grill or stove.

As always, proper food cleaning and preparation is the best defense.

Wash fruits and vegetables before eating, unless the package says the contents have been washed.

Some methods for reducing the risk of infection include thoroughly washing hands after using the bathroom or before cooking and eating, fully cooking meats to kill germs, and avoiding unpasteurized products like raw milk.
