April 5th, 2019

The CDC is currently investigating an E. coli O103 outbreak that has affected 72 people in 5 states including Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Virginia, and Georgia. A specific food item, grocery store, or restaurant chain has not been identified as the source of infections yet. Symptoms of illness typically include stomach cramps and diarrhea, including bloody diarrhea, and people generally become ill two to five days after consuming contaminated food.

To help stop the spread, it is recommended to wash hands frequently for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water, especially before eating, after going to the bathroom, handling raw meat and eggs, and after handling or petting animals;

Additional recommended steps to help reduce the spread of e.coli are

  • Thoroughly washing produce before eating;
  • Thoroughly cooking meat;
  • Cleaning and sanitizing food preparation areas;
  • Avoiding swallowing lake or pool water;
  • Drinking only pasteurized milk;
  • Frequently cleaning and sanitizing restrooms, including doorknobs and faucets; and
  • Reporting diarrheal illnesses to your physician.
