CDC Investigates E. Coli Outbreak In Connecticut And Other States
Apr 13 2018 by Kathy Alvarado
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in conjunction with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are in the preliminary stages of investigating a multistate Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7 outbreak.
An outbreak of infections associated with a common type of bacteria found in foods, the environment and in the gastrointestinal tract of people and animals, has sicken 17 people in seven states, including two in CT.
In conclusion, E. Coli outbreak in the USA has reached OH, where, until now, only one confirmed case has been registered by the CDC. Nine people were hospitalized, including two with a type of kidney failure, and one death was reported in California.
The CDC still has yet to figure out what the cause of the outbreak is and is not yet recommending people avoid certain foods or restaurants.
Most people infected with E. coli will develop diarrhea, severe stomach cramps and vomiting within 3-4 days of swallowing the germ. Illnesses started from March 22, 2018 to March 31, 2018.
"Illnesses reported by investigators in New Jersey also included ill people who had a diagnostic test showing they were infected with E. coli bacteria", the CDC reports in an April 10 news release.

Musk had said in February the company planned to start making investments in Model Y production toward the end of 2018. Neither Tesla nor NHTSA has released the underlying data to support the crash-rate reduction claim.
The states that reported cases of infection are New Jersey, Idaho, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Ohio, and Washington.
According to the CDC, the investigation is still ongoing, and a specific food item, grocery store, or restaurant chain has not been identified as the source of infections, although health officials in New Jersey implicated Panera as a possible source.
Even though the first E. Coli cases have been registered on the U.S. territory in late March, only in April the situation has become more serious and was called an outbreak.
The outbreak began in late March.
