  • E. coli mystery solved Ground beef is source outbreak that includes Indiana CDC says

At this time no common supplier, distributor, or brand of ground beef has been identified as the source of this E. coli outbreak, but the CDC is now investigating the locations these ill people purchased ground beef from or ordered at a restaurant to determine this.

"Traceback investigations are ongoing to determine the source of ground beef supplied to grocery stores and restaurant where ill people ate", said an update on the CDC website. Among them, 17 have been hospitalized for the infection. Because investigators haven't yet pinpointed a precise supplier behind the contaminated beef, the CDC says it is not recommending that the public stop eating beef; it remains available to purchase in grocery stores.

Symptoms include diarrhea, stomach cramps, and vomiting.

"Most people recover from E. coli O103 infections within a week, but some illnesses last longer and can be more severe, resulting in a type of kidney failure", said chief science officer and state epidemiologist Cherie Drenzek.

Now, health officials may finally have the answer: ground beef. No deaths have been reported in relation to the outbreak.

What To Do Amid E. Coli Outbreak?

They're also not discouraging retailers from serving or selling ground beef.

Despite the findings, the agency said it is not advising people to avoid consuming ground beef, but recommends consumers and restaurants handle it safely and cook it thoroughly to avoid further illnesses.

In the meantime, the CDC reminds consumers to prevent E. coli by washing hands, cooking ground beef to an internal temperature of 160 degrees, as measured with a meat thermometer, and keeping foods that aren't cooked away from raw beef to prevent cross-contamination. Proper hygiene and cleanliness of the kitchen are also crucial when handling raw meat. Refrigerated meat should also be used within a day or two.

Most people infected by the bacteria get better within five to seven days. It would also be helpful for people to recall and write down everything they consumed the week before getting sick.
