The Redding, California, newspaper has reported that another California resident has been confirmed to be ill with the same strain of E. coli O157:H7 as that which was recalled by Natural Selections Foods.

Shasta County Public Health officials confirmed the illness as part of the outbreak, but would not disclose the outlet where the victim purchased and consumed the spinach. Dr. Lou Anne Cummings, Shasta County Public Health deputy health officer, said the patient had eaten at two restaurants that may have received shipments of the contaminated spinach.

Both restaurants had been following all proper rules and procedures, and the contaminated spinach has been removed, limiting the spread of the virulent bacteria.
