Two children hospitalized in Clark County E. coli outbreak
A potentially deadly form of E. coli bacteria has hospitalized two Clark County children in critical condition, according to the Oregonian. They allegedly contracted the bacteria by drinking unpasteurized milk.
They are among six Clark County children ages 5 to 14 who apparently have come down in the past week with E. coli 0157:H7, a strain that can cause death or serious kidney damage. Four cases have been confirmed and the remaining two appear likely to be the same strain.
