Boulder, Where The Rich Always Keep Secrets, Won’t Say Which Sorority Has E coli Outbreak

Public Health Officials Investigating wave of E. coli cases

Boulder County Public Health (BCPH) is currently investigating a cluster of E. coli O157:H7 infections associated with students attending the University of Colorado at Boulder (CU). Since September 23rd, BCPH has investigated eight related cases.

Initial investigations indicate that on-campus dining is not related to the illness. BCPH staff is working closely with CU and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to identify the source of the outbreak and any additional cases among students and the public.  According to the Daily Camera, Initial investigations showed that on-campus dining isn’t related to the outbreak, but health officials are still trying to identify the source. Of the eight cases, seven are CU students and one is a sorority adviser. Most of the affected students are members of the same sorority, which CU officials declined to name.

There have been recent E. coli outbreaks traced to steaks and lettuce.
