All of the students reported bloody diarrhea, and seven students remain hospitalized.   

According to university physician Beth Alexander, an identical strain of E. coli has positively linked two of the illnesses.  The other eight cases could be positively linked to the outbreak by the end of this week. 

Public health officials will be aided in their investigation by examining the swipe history of the students’ ID cards.  This will identify where and when the students consumed meals prior to becoming ill. 

University students and staff who have experienced food poisoning symptoms should contact the Olin Health Center [517-884-OLIN (6546)], or the Ingham County Health Department (517-887-4300).
