“Public Health is investigating a new cluster of seven children infected with Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (also known as STEC) in King County. All cases are currently under 14 years of age, and three are under five years of age. Cases have been reported between April 22–May 1, 2021.
All 7 child... ren developed symptoms consistent with STEC, including diarrhea (often bloody), abdominal cramping, nausea, and vomiting. Illness onsets occurred during April 17–29, 2021. Six children have been hospitalized; this includes one child who developed a type of kidney complication called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) and is recovering and a second child who is suspected to have HUS.
The investigation is ongoing, and they have not identified any foods, restaurants, or other sources in common among all cases. It is not yet known whether these cases share the same source or not. Public Health is conducting interviews with cases and their parents/guardians to help identify any common exposures. They are working with the Washington State Department of Health to complete further testing and to help identify possible related cases in other counties.
Public Health advises If you or your child develop painful or bloody diarrhea, diarrhea that lasts more than 3 days or is accompanied by a high fever or decreased urine, contact your healthcare provider to see if testing for STEC is indicated. Anyone ill with suspected or known STEC should not work in or attend childcare or preschool, or work in food handling or healthcare until cleared by Public Health.

“My husband always gets food from this place. An normally im very werry of Chinese take out. But I ordered beef and broccoli. Something wasn't right. I was starving an started scarfing the food down we were out shopping all day so when we got home we ate an put on HBO. Me an my husband tend to share... foods all the time. So I started eating the beef an it had a funny taste an smell. Silly me I assumed I just hadn't had it in a while an was being overly picky. I crave candy allot due to quitting smoking cigarettes an we went up to our gas station to grab candy. By then after eating only a few bites out of it as hungry as I was something made me stop when I ripped a piece for the cats texture was all wrong. I've worked in kitchens for 9 pluss years an knew instantly I was f**ked. Didn't give it to the pets. Instead put it back in container. Ran to get candy totally of 35 to half her had passed. We reached the pump an all the sudden this narrly egg rotten smell erupted from a small burp. I instantly knew i had nothing with egg in it at all that day. I looked at my husband said babe I'm not feeling so well let's get the candy an get our kid tucked in with a movie soon as we get home. I ended up swallowing allot before bed a tendency my body goes into before excessive throwing up or I get very sick. So I was swallowing allot out of no where an started feeling very ill I forced myself to sleep like I do so when I woke up I'd feel better. I passed out. I woke up out of a dead sleep vomited all over my bed I instantly got clammy. I was so classy and hot and cold flush that I felt as if I had hopped out of a pool I was drenched in nasty clamy sweat . I ate allot threw that day out while we were shopping. Typical lunch snacks ect. But the only thing that came out was Chinese. I was projectial vomiting. I started to wonder is this a stomach bug. Is this food poisoning I just had the food and not long after I was sick as he'll. I kept throwing up all night I to the next day. At this point I was telling my husband I couldn't keep up at this rate. I'm a woman who can push her self even after throwing up blood for three days and say ill wait till its gets bad enough. Basically once I'm septic and in shock or on my death bed I just don't go. I can push myself to try and ween things out. Not this though. I begged for this throwing up to stop. I was throwing up after there was nothing but yellow bile left. And after the yellow bile was gone it was brownish green. My throw up went from chucks to a liquid. I was in to much stomach pain. To get up I was puking all over myself. Finally my husband got me into the tub as I threw up in the tub. He went to look at the food and noticed so.thing was off about the way the beef looked he said it looked like maybe they made to much and just re heated and re heatd and re heated it. The or it had been left out for quite sometime or he figureded sense he had egg and I had beef the cook touched the eggs then the beef and instant cross contamination. At this point my mother was in town I was looking forward for two weeks for her to come up from FL but I was to sick and to week to see her the bloating and the sharp pains in my stomach were killing me. I rested as much as I could and forced myself to make an appearance. Even though I could hardly stand I had to sit or hold on to her vehicle to keep up right. My mom instantly noticed I was very pale and sickly. She brought sprite and banned and crackers to help me feel better. But the next two days following my body was to week to get up to use the restroom I could t stand upright to walk. I was crouched holding my stomach for days. I recommend not ordering the beef and broccoli you just never know with this kinda stuff. My husband says I should report this and press charges for it debilitating me for so many days. An the loss of work and money. But I'm just trying to figure out if there's a food place I can have the food tested. The hospital take urine samples when food poisoning occurs and a stool sample and a blood test. To find out the bacteria it is. But in this instance it was e. Coli. I'm just wonder if I should report this to the food consumers and have someone inspect there food joint and make sure things are being done properly. ”
