State investigates e-coli outbreak at Greenhaven Correctional Facility

Dutchess County as well as state officials are trying to determine the cause of an E. coli outbreak amongst prisoners at Greenhaven Correctional Facility in Stormville, where 52 inmates became ill earlier this month.
Three inmates had to be transported to outside hospitals for treatment.
Dutchess County Health Commissioner Dr. Michael Caldwell is looking for the cause of the bacterial disease. “We are working very diligently to assure that this is not going to happen again, number one; number two, that we really understand where the source of the infection came from,” he said.
E-coli can come from undercooked chopped meat, water supplies, juices and vegetables.
No prison guards or other employees have come down with the illness.
