Minnesota E. coli outbreak report released
The Brainerd Dispatch reported an update on the E. coli O157:H7 outbreak in Longville, Minnesota from this summer. The Minnesota Department of Health released its final report on the outbreak.
The USDA collected a sample of beef trimmings from a meat processing plant that yielded an outbreak of E. coli O157:H7. However, that MDH learned of this several days after the Longville outbreak began.
USDA would not report the name of the processing plant to the state health department or the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, and therefore it is unclear if the sample was from the plant MDH’s and MDA’s investigations find most likely.
