E. Coli Outbreak: Kills 1; Sickens Dozens

According to Health Officials, raw packages of spinach is likely the sources of an E. coli outbreak, killing at least one person and made at least 49 other people sick. Connecticut, Idaho, Indiana, Michigan, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Wisconsin, and California have all made reports and are investigating a possible case.

A warning has been issued by officials, until they identify the source of the spinach’s distribution, says Priscilla Rodreguez of KNX 1070 NewsRadiol

Amy Philpott of the United Fresh Produce Association says her industry is, ”very concerned” and taking the outbreak ”very seriously.”

Officials say most healthy adults can recover within a week. Some people, mainly the very young and old, can develop hemmolytic uremic syndrome, a form of kidney failure that often leads to death.
