Preliminary tests conducted using milk samples from Dee Creek Farm provided by shareholders have tested positive for E. coli, according to NewsRadio 750 KXL.
The samples will now be tested by the state to verify that the strain of E. coli is the same as that which has sickened 18 people, who reported consuming unpasteurized milk from the farm.
Ten of the victims are from Clark County , five from Cowlitz County , and three from Clatsop County, Oregon.
Of the eighteen victims, five children have been hospitalized during this outbreak. Two remain hospitalized and are improving.
