E. Coli Outbreak: Bacterium Confirmed In 7th Child

Farm Not Licensed

WOODLAND, Wash. -- A seventh child now has a confirmed case of E. coli, health officials said Wednesday.

Four of the seven children sickened with the potentially deadly bacterium are in serious condition.

The health department says all the cases are connected to drinking unpasteurized milk from Dee Creek Farm near Woodland. Washington agriculture officials say dairy producers are required to be licensed and inspected monthly, but Dee Creek has never been licensed.

Officials say criminal charges are possible. They urge anyone with Dee Creek milk to pour it out.
