Following up on a previous article, the Billings Gazette is now reporting that Little Seeds Early Childhood Daycare Center reopened Monday, and that parents are confident that an outbreak of E. coli 0157:H had been contained.
The City-County Health Department identified cantaloupe served at the center on July 6 as the probable culprit in an outbreak that sickened six children.
The downtown day-care center, located in the basement of First United Methodist Church at 2800 Fourth Ave. N., voluntarily closed last Tuesday after the first cases were diagnosed. None of the children stricken in Billings required hospitalization, and all are recovering.
