An E. coli outbreak at an Indiana daycare has sickened several children, according to WDNU-TV. The Fulton and Wabash County Health Departments and Indiana State Department of Health are working together to investigate the outbreak which may include a fatality.
In June, an E. coli outbreak at the Learning Vine daycare center in South Carolina sickened 14 children, one of whom died. E.coli attorneys Eric Hageman and Ryan Osterholm, of the national food safety law firm PritzkerOlsen, are filing a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the family whose 2-year old boy died.
About 10 percent of children who contract E. coli infections develop a severe complication called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) which leads to kidney failure. HUS can also cause seizure, stroke, coma and death.
