The Daily News Online reports that Clark County Health Department officials have announced that one of the final two children hospitalized with E. coli last month has been released from the hospital. The other remains in the hospital but is improving.
Five Clark County children were hospitalized in an E. coli outbreak linked to raw milk from Woodland’s Dee Creek Farm. A total of 18 people were sickened.
Preliminary state tests found E. coli in Dee Creek milk, but more sophisticated tests are needed to link the DNA of the E. coli found in the milk to the DNA of the E. coli found in patients.
The farm stopped distributing milk after the outbreak and remains under a cease-and-desist order from Cowlitz County.
