Fast food may be the culprit in the e. coli outbreak in Kentucky, although it is not definitive as yet. A health department official did report that the people who became ill had “extensive exposure” to fast food restaurants.
According to Public Health Commissioner Dr. Jeff Howard:
According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), “When two or more people get the same illness from the same contaminated food or drink, the event is called a foodborne disease outbreak.” The
Kentucky Department of Public Health
is continuing to investigate the e. coli outbreak in Kentucky, to determine the specific source of the contamination and to prevent further illnesses.
