Eighteen people in two states got sick after drinking milk contaminated with E. coli from Dee Creek Farm, 13 of them children. The last child hospitalized with E. coli has finally gone home.
Dr. Justin Denney, Clark County’s health officer, said that it’s still too soon to tell if the children will have long-term health effects, but added that it may be possible, given that some of the hospitalized children had kidney failure and required dialysis.
Two families have hired Seattle lawyer Drew Falkenstein to investigate a lawsuit to recoup the long-term medical needs of their children, which he said could be substantial.
