E.coli Case Confirmed In Colorado

Denver (AP) _ The Colorado Health Department confirms that an E.coli case in Colorado is related to a multistate outbreak linked to raw spinach. Department spokesman Mark Salley says the victim lives in Gunnison County in western Colorado and contracted the illness after eating spinach. Health officials say four other Coloradans have been sickened by E.coli after eating the leafy greens. Two are from boulder county and two from Denver. Salley says one Denver case is not related to the outbreak while results have not come in on the others. E.coli cases linked to tainted spinach have been reported in 21 other states. Wisconsin has reported the most, including the death of a 77-year-old woman. A death in Ohio is being investigated.
