KSFY in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, reports that a one-year-old boy from Sioux Center, Iowa is currently hospitalized with hemolytic uremic syndrome at a Sioux Falls area hospital.  There are no reported "confirmed" cases in the JBS outbreak from Iowa . . . Yet.  But these outbreaks tend to evolve.  After all, we're talking about a product that many people buy and simply throw into their freezers until they're ready to consume it.  That means that these products can last months.  All the more reason for concerted public health efforts to spread the word about developing outbreaks and assist retailers in getting recalled products off their shelves . . . and out of consumers houses.

We've seen hundreds of kids in Isaiah Romero's exact medical circumstances.   I hope to see a news report soon saying that his illness was not as bad as it could have been.  Too many have gone the other way over the last few years.  In the meantime, we'll keep moving in discovery against JBS Swift in the New Mexico case that we filed yesterday (filed in Colorado).
