An 11-year-old girl was confirmed late Friday as having illness caused by E. coli O157:H7 infection. She was not hospitalized and did not develop complications associated with hemolytic uremic syndrome.
The case was confirmed by the Oregon Public Health Division and reported Saturday to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The girl is the sixth confirmed case in Oregon.
