The Source of That Mysterious E. Coli Outbreak Has Likely Been Found

by Rachael Rettner, Senior Writer Live Science

The mystery behind what’s causing the Escherichia coli outbreak that’s sickened more than 100 Americans in the past month may finally be solved: Officials have linked the outbreak to ground beef.

In a statement released today (April 12), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that, based on interviews with the sick people, preliminary evidence suggests that ground beef is the source of the outbreak. Those who became ill reported eating ground beef at home or in restaurants.

So far, the outbreak has sickened 109 people in six states. Of these, 17 people have been hospitalized, but no deaths have been reported.

  1. I have told everyone I know, to stop eating factory produced meats since Trump was elected. deregulating the meat industry was a near certainty. I am frankly surprised this type of report has not become more prolific.

  2. the truth hurts, We are pleased you enjoy the respite with the scientific articles. Science and history are my favorites. Duff and Dean have written about Hagee, and all the other things you mentioned. Go to the search part of VT and type in those terms. You should find lots of articles.
