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).
