North Bay E Coli Outbreak Grows To 190

Harvey’s restaurant in North Bay, Ontario must have been a popular place.   The number of E coli 0157:H7 cases linked to Harvey’s increased today to 190, up from 158 just a day earlier.   Of those, 36 have been confirmed by laboratory results.  CBC News gave this report:

"We believe the increase in the number of cases is largely due to people who are still reporting their symptoms and are within the expected timeframe of the outbreak," the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit said in a statement.

The cases are spread across nine health unit districts in Ontario and one in Quebec, and the majority remain linked to the Harvey’s on Algonquin Avenue in North Bay, the city’s health unit said.

All of the initial food samples collected on Oct. 12, when health officials shut down the restaurant, have tested negative for E. coli strain.

All of the packaged food from the restaurant have also tested negative for E. coli, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
