Petting-zoo infections grow
The Orlando Sentinel has reported that are now three more cases of E. coli-related illnesses in Central Florida due to petting zoos at fairs.
The new confirmed cases bring the total to 26 children and four adults. 47 suspected cases are still under investigation.
Investigators determined last week that the E. coli bacteria were spread through contact with infected animals from Plant City-based AgVenture Farm Shows’ petting zoos at three fairs in Tampa, Orlando and Plant City in February and March.
