CDC investigating 'quick' E. coli outbreak in Michigan

A "quick" E. coli breakout has infected dozens of people and hospitalized nine others in Ohio and Michigan.

No deaths have been reported as of now from the affected areas, as the principal infection was recorded in July.

The number of infected could increase over time due to the uncertainty behind the source of the outbreak.

The CDC says it will use its PulseNet system to find the cause of the outbreak during its investigation.

If an individual believes they are infected with E. coli, the CDC recommends they make a record of what they ate in the preceding week, report the illness to the authorities.

Side effects of E. Coli infection often change depending on the person however normally include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea, spewing, and fever.

The illness can happen from one to ten days after exposure by either eating or drinking something containing the bacteria.
