    E.coli is an illness generally caused by eating undercooked meat, unwashed spinach, unpasteurized fruit juices and more.  The Center for Disease Control’s website offers information and news items on e.coli outbreaks, which have occured on several occasions within the past decade.  The FDA says that there are probably more instances of e.coli outbreaks because of less severe cases that have most likely been unreported.  They say, “In the Pacific Northwest, E. coli O157:H7 is thought to be second only to Salmonella as a cause of bacterial diarrhea.”
