A number of the students have been hospitalized; and some are being treated for kidney failure (see hemolytic uremic syndrome, or HUS) at Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville.

Health investigators have not yet identified the source of the outbreak, and there appears to be no link to recent E. coli outbreaks reported in Kentucky, or infections connected to the Topps Hamburger Recall and the El Rancherito Restaurant outbreak in Illinois.
