Pancake Breakfast in a Stock Pavilion 2001

An outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 infections occurred following an October 6, 2001 pancake breakfast that was held at a university stock pavilion. The pavilion was used for many activities including livestock classes. Environmental samples and fecal samples from humans and cattle were collected. A long wait for breakfast was associated with risk of illness. E. coli O157:H7 was isolated from cattle and from sawdust on the pavilion floor that matched the E. coli O157:H7 strain that had been isolated from the people. Although cow manure had been observed on the pavilion floor, the cows were not present during the breakfast event.
