E. coli outbreak in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, has ended

In October there were reports of an E. Coli outbreak in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. Health officials now say that the outbreak has ended. Test results from the National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg have shown that Newfoundland and Labrador was the only affected province in Canada that was affected by the outbreak.

30 cases overall were confirmed by the province’s western, central, and eastern health authorities, reports the provincial Department of Health and Community. In a statement they say that the “probable source” of the bacteria was spinach, but there is no longer a health risk because the source has been removed from the food supply.
