So, what’s the cause of the recent E. coli O157:H7 Outbreak?


The CDC posted this today:

The CDC, public health and regulatory officials in several states (in addition to Ohio and Michigan?), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA-FSIS) – I do not recall a CDC post recently that included working with both the FSIS (regulates, Beef, Pork, Poultry and Catfish) and the FDA (regulates everything else).

Here are some details:

29 Illnesses- 14 in Ohio (Wood County Health Department reports 20) and 15 in Michigan (Michigan Department of Health reports 98).

Illnesses onset dates: July 26, 2022, to August 6, 2022.

Age: 6 to 91 years, median age of 21 years, and 38% are female (hmm, what do 62% of men eat?).

17 people with information available, 9 have been hospitalized.

A food has not yet been identified as the source and this investigation is ongoing
