Hospital Treats Several Children For E. coli

The University of Alabama at Birmingham Children’s Hospital is treating several children with E. coli bacterial infection.
Jeremiah McCord, 2, was at the hospital undergoing kidney dialysis because of HUS. It’s his third treatment. Jeremiah is one of seven children in the last month, five in the last week, to be treated at the Children’s Hospital for the infection.
No one knows how Jeremiah or the other six children contracted E. coli, but it’s most commonly found in the intestines of cows and typically spreads in undercooked ground beef.
