LOCAL RESTAURANT POSSIBLE LINK TO E. COLI CASES

WTVC today reported that an E. coli O157:H7 outbreak in Tennessee has been traced to a restaurant in Hixson.

The Chattanooga-Hamilton County Health Department reports seven of the eight cases of E. coli might have come from the Ryan’s Family Steak House on north Hixson Pike in Hixson.

Since the outbreak, the health department has inspected and cleaned the restaurant. Follow-up visits have been satisfactory, and no employee has tested positive for E. coli. One employee refused testing, and resigned instead.

Although there is no confirmed link to the restaurant, all of the infected patients had eaten there prior to getting ill. The CHCHD’s investigation, plus one by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, still continue.
