CDC, public health and regulatory officials in several states, the FDA, and the USDA-FSIS are collecting different types of data to identify the food source of a multistate outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 infections. So far, illnesses have only been reported from Michigan and Ohio. A single... See More food has not yet been identified as the source and this investigation is ongoing.

Michigan and Ohio have both reported large increases in the number of E. coli infections in their states. As of August 16, 2022, a total of 29 people infected with the outbreak strain of E. coli O157:H7 have been reported to CDC from 2 states (MI and OH). 9 people were hospitalized and no deaths were reported. Illnesses started on dates ranging from July 26, 2022, to August 6, 2022

To prevent getting sick from E. coli, CDC advises following these 4 steps when handling or preparing food: clean, separate, cook, and chill.
- Clean: Wash your hands, utensils, and surfaces often. Rinse fruits and vegetables under running water before eating, cutting, or peeling.
- Separate: Keep food that won’t be cooked separate from raw meat, poultry, and seafood.
- Cook: Use a food thermometer to make sure you have cooked your food to a temperature high enough to kill germs.
- Chill: Refrigerate perishable food (food that goes bad) within 2 hours. If the food is exposed to temperatures above 90°F (like a hot car or picnic), refrigerate within 1 hour. Thaw food in the refrigerator, not on the counter.

In case you are experiencing E. coli symptoms such as watery diarrhea (often bloody), vomiting; stomach cramps; and mild fever, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), the MDARD, and 3 local health departments – Kent, Ottawa, and Oakland – are investigating a recent increase in the number of illnesses related to E. coli bacteria.

MDHHS had received reports of 98 cases of E. coli... See More infection in August, compared to 20 cases reported during the same time period in 2021. The current investigation is in the early stages. Laboratory results have linked some of these cases to each other.

According to MDHHS, prevention of E. coli is often directly connected to proper hand hygiene and food handling practices, such as:

- Washing hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds, or using an alcohol-based sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol: before and after handling food, after using the bathroom or changing a diaper, and after contact with animals or their environments, such as farms, petting zoos, fairs or even the backyard.
- Always marinating foods in the refrigerator, not on the counter or outdoors. Never reuse sauce on cooked food used to marinate raw meat or poultry.
- Never placing cooked food on a plate that previously held raw meat, poultry, seafood, or eggs. Be sure to have on hand plenty of clean utensils and platters.
- Never letting raw meat, poultry, eggs, or cooked food sit at room temperature more than two hours before putting them in the refrigerator or freezer (one hour when the temperature is above 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Cooking meats thoroughly. Ground beef and meat should be cooked to an internal temperature of at least 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Consumers should use a food thermometer as color is not an indicator of “doneness.”
- Rinsing fruits and vegetables well under running water. There is no need to use soap.
- Avoiding raw milk, unpasteurized dairy products and unpasteurized juices (like fresh apple cider).
- Avoiding swallowing water when swimming or playing in lakes, ponds, streams, swimming pools, and backyard “kiddie” pools.

In case you are experiencing E. coli symptoms such as watery diarrhea (often bloody), vomiting; stomach cramps; and mild fever, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.

The Ottawa County Department of Public Health is alerting the public to increasing cases of shiga-toxin producing E. coli (STEC) infections in the community. As of August 10, 2022 , they are monitoring 9 cases of STEC, which is significantly higher than the typical number of cases... See More reported at this time of the year. 4 of those have been hospitalized for their symptoms. MDARD and the MDHHS are investigating possible links between the cases.

Symptoms of STEC can vary from person to person, but usually include the following: Diarrhea (often bloody), Severe stomach cramps, Vomiting and Low-grade fever. Symptoms of STEC infection typically appear 3 to 4 days after eating or drinking something that contains the bacteria. Most people with mild STEC infection begin to improve within 5 to 7 days after infection, but some individuals, including young children and the elderly, may experience severe or even life-threatening symptoms.

In case you are experiencing STEC symptoms, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.
