July 10, 2007: More Confirmed Cases of E. coli in Huntsville, Alabama

According to Dr. Debra Williams of the Madison County Health Department in Alabama, eight more individuals have tested positive for E. coli, bringing the total to 14 confirmed cases. Most of the victims are children or young adults, and five remain hospitalized. It is expected that more cases will be confirmed.

Dr. Williams also indicated that while the exact source of the bacteria has not been determined, most of the patients had eaten at Little Rosie's Taqueria on Whitesburg Drive in Huntsville in late June.

Initial symptoms of E. coli food poisoning may include abdominal cramps and watery diarrhea. The diarrhea may become bloody, and can lead to dehydration. Fever may or may not be present. Sometimes there are no symptoms at all. Symptoms usually resolve in 5-10 days.

Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS), a serious complication of E. coli infection, may occur in about 2%-7% of cases. HUS is characterized by destruction of red blood cells, damage to the lining of blood vessel walls, and, in severe cases, kidney failure. Children and the elderly are at greatest risk for developing HUS.
