E. Coli: Preventing Outbreaks at Camp.
McKinney, Mary D.
Camping Magazine, v68 n3 p25-26 Jan-Feb 1996
One strain of E. coli is not usually found in foods, but has been related to consumption of undercooked ground beef. Symptoms are stomach cramps and diarrhea, and 2-7% of infections lead to hemolytic uremic syndrome, which is life threatening. Camps can prevent outbreaks by avoiding uncooked meat on overnight campouts and requiring appropriate hand-washing techniques. (TD)
