Sleuths seek origins of E.coli outbreak tied to N.C. State Fair

The Associated Press reported yesterday that North Carolina state epidemiologist Dr. Jeff Engel has a goal of naming the source of the State Fair E. coli outbreak by Christmas.
So far, 106 cases are believed to be involved in the outbreak tied to last month’s North Carolina State Fair, with 50 confirmed as E.coli. Four people remain on dialysis after their kidneys shut down from exposure to the E.coli bacteria.
Health investigators are still working to pinpoint the source of the bacteria among exhibitors or food vendors who set up on the fairgrounds in Raleigh for the 10-day event.
