SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 6-year-old girl from San Diego who was sickened by E.coli bacteria may have picked up illness from a cheese sample at a Costco store, authorities said Saturday.
So far 25 people in four states have been infected with the potentially deadly E.coli 0157:H7 bacteria, and all of them, including the girl, ate Costco samples of Bravo Farms Dutch Style Gouda cheese, according to the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency.
Although the bacteria can cause bloody diarrhea and dehydration, the girl did not need to be hospitalized, said Dr. Dean Sidelinger, a deputy public health officer with the county.
Costco has voluntarily removed the cheese from its stores and has called the 6,000 customers who bought the cheese to warn them not to eat it. The cheese may also have been available at farmers markets or online, according to the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency.
Anyone who bought the cheese should return it or throw it away in a closed plastic bag, Sidelinger said.
