7 E. coli cases verified in N.C.

At least 2 suspected E. coli cases are linked to the state fair in Raleigh. State officials Sunday night said they have confirmed seven cases of E. coli in four counties, including two in Mecklenburg, the Charlotte Observer reports.
A spokeswoman said state health officials are investigating last month’s fair in Raleigh as one possible cause of at least two confirmed Wake County cases, and a third suspected case.
From the article:

“There are three cases that seem to have that in common, but the investigation is not yet done,” said Carol Schriber, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Health and Human Services.
The fair ran from Oct. 15 to 24, and drew more than 800,000 people.
Schriber said most of the confirmed cases were children, including the three Wake County cases.
Wake, Lee and Mecklenburg counties each have two confirmed cases, state officials said in a statement. Wilson County has one.
