Officals mum on E. coli outbreak
The Weber-Morgan Health Department has refused to disclose the name of a Weber County restaurant where three people contracted E. coli infections, according to the Standard-Examiner.
"We have a policy not to disclose that information," said department Director Gary House. "Our policy is to protect businesses. If we felt it was serious enough, then we would do that."
The Standard-Examiner filed a request for the information under the Government Records Access and Management Act. Under the act, department officials have up to 10 days to respond.
Two of the three individuals infected developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, the most severe type of E. coli infection, according to the health department.
All three people contracted E. coli from the same source during June 28-30, a written news release from the health department said.
