Iowa E. coli outbreak sends 14 to hospital

An E. coli O157:H7 outbreak has been traced to a fast food restaurant in eastern Iowa, according to the Des Moines Register. The outbreak is said to have sickened at least 19 people, hospitalizing 14 of those who became ill as part of the outbreak. The Black Hawk County Health Department is investigating the outbreak, and expects lab test to be completed on Monday.

A number of the E. coli outbreak victims are students at the University of Northern Iowa.  Last month, an E. coli O157:H7 outbreak that sickened a number of University of North Carolina students was traced to a Chapel Hill restaurant.
