E. coli outbreak from rotting ground beef grows in 10 states

In people infected today, 20 of them have been hospitalized, said Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Tuesday. No more fatalities.

The cases included people eating meat since March 1, it said, but no supplier, distributor or brand of meat has been identified.

"Traceback investigations continue to identify the source of raw beef given at grocery stores and restaurant locations where people are being ill with eating," the CDC said.

The diseases that began on March 1, and the infected age at the age of 1 to 83 years, with a median age of 19, said.

"Diseases that occur after March 26 may not be reported due to the time that occurs between a person who is sick with E. coli and when the disease is reported. It takes an average of two to three week, "said the CDC.

Earlier this month, the CDC said it identified ground beef as a food that was responsible for a outbreak. At that time, this outbreak said there were 1
09 cases of illnesses in six states.
The outbreak is now expanded in 10 states: Georgia, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, Indiana, Florida, Illinois, Mississippi, Minnesota.

Symptoms include severe abdominal pain, diarrhea and vomiting. They begin, on average, three to four days after the bacteria stick. Most people get 5 to 7 days. The first reported symptoms from this outbreak began on March 2.

Buyers are encouraged to prevent the spread of E. coli by washing hands, cooking beef in an internal temperature of 160 degrees and keeping foods that are not eaten from raw meat to prevent high-quality salts.
