E.coli O157 & Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome

France announces link to German E.coli outbreak

27th June 2011

French authorities have announced that an E.coli outbreak in Bordeaux at the end of last week may be linked to the recent outbreak in Germany

So far 10 victims in France are suffering from bloody diarrhoea, with five diagnosed with haemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) symptoms typically caused by Shiga toxin-producing E.coli.

Initial tests have found the Ecoli O104:H4 bacteria present in two of the cases, with French officials confirming it said this was the same strain as that responsible for the outbreak in Germany.

Epidemiological investigations found that a number of patients, who live in close proximity to each other, had attended an open day at a community centre in the Bègles on 8 June. Many were said to have eaten beansprouts scattered on various dishes.
