An article in The Oklahoman reports how E. coli O157:H7 infection and its complication, HUS can affect families.

All but one member of the Schulz family became ill with E. coli. Two-year-old Eliza is still hospitalized at Children’s Hospital at the Oklahoma University Medical Center, undergoing kidney dialysis. 

Eliza’s parents believe their family is part of the E. coli outbreak traced to contaminated spinach, but health officials have been unable to confirm their suspicions.
