A mystery unfolds for Federal and State health officials after a spring outbreak of E. coli in a half-dozen states. The source of the bacteria remains unknown.
FOX News Radio's Eben Brown reports:
Fourteen people in six states have gotten sick. One child in New Orleans is dead; all due to a possibly new strain of E. coli.
Dr. O'Neal: "And we know that this comes from a single source. We don't know where. We've not been able to identify a particular food or environmental exposure."
That's Doctor Patrick O'Neal of the Georgia Department of Health. Since they don't know where it came from, they can't say much other than to tell you to cook all food thoroughly, avoid unpasturized food, and wash your hands.
